AWARDS

Ranked 3rd at The Top Brunello di Montalcino 2012 by James Suckling

97 points, James Suckling: This is all about finesse and beauty with such great length and polish. It literally melts in your mouth. Full-bodied yet agile and vivid. So many undertones of cedar, berries, cream and light toffee. Fabulous. Contender for the wine of the vintage.

Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino, located in Tuscany, is one of Italy's most famous and prestigious wines.

Brunello must be made from 100% Sangiovese and aged for at least four years (five for riserva wines). Two of these years must be spent in oak, and the wine must be bottled at least four months prior to commercial release. The elegant, age-worthy wine which results from these strict laws is known for its brilliant garnet hue and its bouquet of berries with underlying vanilla and spice. A hint of earthiness brings balance to the finest examples.
