“A racy version, this boasts black cherry, blueberry, violet and iron flavors. A firm line of tannins works in concert with the acidity, while flashes of Mediterranean scrub peek through. Mouthwatering finish. Sangiovese and Merlot. Drink now through 2032.” -Wine Spectator
This wine was originally known as the Biondi-Santi “White Label Brunello”, but officially changed its name in 1983, when the Rosso di Montalcino DOC was established. It reflects the signature style of our high-altitude vineyards with a vibrant freshness and a distinct fruitiness which makes it thoroughly enjoyable at a young age. There is no greater Rosso di Montalcino made and this is better than 90% of the Brunello di Montalcinos you’re going to find, easy.

It’s got red-fruited, super smooth, and well-balanced Chianti with a lot of energy wound up in the bottle. Suckling, of course, got his hands on it and loved it, calling the organically grown, sustainable Chianti “quaffable” and highlighting its “silky texture and bright finish.”

“The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon is a very pretty wine. Readers will find a supple, perfumed Cabernet Sauvignon that emphasizes freshness and drinkability more than the richer style often associated with Tuscany’s Maremma. I admire its balance and aromatic presence, both of which make it a fine choice for drinking over the next handful of years.”

The Gaja family first started releasing this great Brunello in 2015 and doesn’t make it in every vintage, only the ones they deem excellent. It’s a classic Brunello with a light garnett hue. The nose boasts red fruits and Mediterranean herbs with a hint of rosemary and thyme. On the attack, there are Bing cherry notes along with plum and cocoa notes at the back of the palate. It’s a well-balanced wine, but it is still such a baby at the moment. It will reward those with patience but should have another 20-30 years of agebility easily.
The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino from Aleramici hits all the right notes. It has a nice medium weight to it with easy drinking cherry, creme de cassis and purple fruits. It’s multi-dimensional with waves of some dark plum and blackberry with more sage and spice components as well that compliment it perfectly.

“Cherries, strawberries and a hint of raspberries are on the nose, with some wild fennel and topsoil bringing in herbaceous, earthy notes. More cherries and berries are on the palate, with a mineral salinity and chalky tannins that emphasize the flavor and texture of freshly turned soil drawn from the nose.” -Wine Enthusiast

It’s a super juicy blend of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Syrah that comes right out of the gate with a medium to full body of jammy red fruits, with some violet and cherry notes and a little bit of spice coming at you on the finish.
