2010 Terre del Palio Brunello di Montalcino

Their Brunello di Montalcino undergoes a slow maceration and fermentation at controlled temperatures before aging for three years in Slavonian oak barrels and previously used French barriques.

2012 Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made strictly according to the Sangiovese playbook, the Il Marroneto 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows that exacting Sangiovese precision and personality. This is Alessandro Mori's greatest talent. He takes this workhorse grape and gives it a platform to articulate its most hidden and intricate inner feelings and sentiments. This is a bright and very tight red wine that will benefit from more years to flesh out further. All those budding aromas of wild berry, licorice, cola, and blue flower are strategically in place and ready to explode in time. The win ...Read More »

2010 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

94 points James Suckling: "This is very, very ripe with dried strawberry, raisin and boysenberry character. Full body and a fruit-forward style. Round and velvety tannins. Long, fruity finish.

2006 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino

97 points James Suckling: "Love the nose on this with blackberries, sweet tobacco, blueberries. Full body, with soft and silky tannins and a light jammy finish. Lots of dark fruits. Long finish. Loads going on in this one." (1/2011) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages. A blast of iron, smoke, tar, licorice and new l ...Read More »
