Montalcino, Siena

Pertimali (Livio Sassetti)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2001

Darker scarlet, almost opaque. Masculine meaty nose at first, but with air this softens and shows notes of black cherries, earth, cedar, spice and a little menthol. Nicely balanced in the mouth showing lots of fruit. Great finish. Great showing. Give it air. — 5 days ago

Banfi

Castello Banfi Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2012

A damned good Brunello, great food wine. Leather and dark, woodsy cherry. A bit linear - but young. Not a bad choice on a restaurant wine list. — 3 days ago

Fattoria La Gerla

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2010

needed 3 hours to start expressing itself ~ wonderful aromas and classic flavors of strawberry & raspberry, underbrush & Mediterranean herbs ~ def needs a few years but will reward the owner with a magical ‘moderate’ experience — 3 days ago

Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

My second bottle and I stand by my say; second day is a winner. Great member of the Brunello family. Not the best I had but pretty darn good!! Good with ricotta based meals - strong meats will kill it!
Love Italian wine craft!!

Poggio Antico

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2003

Big Day, Valentine's and Ash Wed, so had to bring out a big gun. Brought it back from our visit to the winery in 2013, and it's luscious, round and yummy! Getting chocolate, raspberries, cherries and a hint of spice in a wonderful melody mid palate... Just awesome. Glad I have 1 more! — 7 days ago
