silvio Nardi founded the estate at Casale del Bosco; since 1985 it has been run by his youngest daughter, Emilia. 100% Sangiovese wine aged in oak for 2 years (12 months French & 12 months Slavonian oak), Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, oak and spice. Full-bodied wine with medium acidity, fine yet smooth tannins and a slight warmth of alcohol present. The ripe fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry are complex yet not overdone. Some cacao, tobacco and toasty appear on the long finish. Tasting Sample.

Past it’s peak. Black olive, balsamic. V soft tannins, still retained some acidity

Monthly wine group met up and had an Italian wine night at one of the local Italian BYOB spots. Really fantastic Italian wines were brought, as well as some random bottles that were outside the theme (but worthy of opening regardless of theme).

This is one of the better brunellos I’ve had in a while. It was double decanted about 6-7hrs before dinner and it needed every bit of that. Darker than expected, in a good way. Black-cherry, smoked earth, spiced dates.

The Nardi Brunello Di Montalciano 2008 evokes a warm, still afternoon in a deciduous forest, the sort where you can hear twigs snapping under your feet. Splendid, woodsy aromas of forest floor, brambles, dried leaves, mushrooms, and dried black cherries. Silky and voluptuous on the palate, with firm, polished tannins that plunge into the substrata—densely packed layers of calcareous earth, sandstone, and marl surface against a backdrop of black fruit. Dried herbs, cedar and tobacco on a lingering finish.

Had this February 23rd 2015. Strong mineral notes upfront on the nose and palate with bright fruit and high acid.

I must say that it didn’t agree with me... light and it’s a dry mistela! Just a bottle before the first family skiing trip

Found at charming "Stowe Wine and Cheese" shop in Vermont, this great Brunello is from the stellar 2010 vintage. Silvio Nardi, in the NW part of Montalcino, makes wine with grapes from different parts of the region. Bright red color with hint of brick orange; nose is full of red fruit, delicious herbs and mint; taste is powerful yet delicate, with silky tannins, high acids, orange peel, and a moderate-length finish with some soothing chestburn at the very end (14.5%). Won't touch my other bottles for many years.
