This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than a decade at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality to price ratio.

94 points James Suckling: "There is a beautiful presence to this wine, with a super-fine tannin structure and dried mushroom and orange peel on the nose. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a refined, pretty finish. So much beauty to this. Drink or hold." (1/2015)93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Full bodied and balanced, this conveys aromas of menthol, underbrush, savory herb, fennel, tilled soil and leather. The vibrant palate offers bright red cherry, crushed raspberry, clove, grilled herb, anise and a balsamic note alongside tightly knit but poised tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2018–2025."

2010 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
2010 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino (Pre-Arrival)

93 points James Suckling: "Lots of bright citrus and plum character to this wine with a full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long and flavorful finish. I really like the acid and fruit balance to this. Better in 2016." (12/2014) K&L Notes: The Baricci vineyard sits on the southeastern slope of the famed Montosoli vineyard site, one of (if not the most) famous in Montalcino. I love the complex earthiness, which has a sort of cherry tobacco, plum mixture that graces the elegant and lithe body. This wine favors grace over power, and needs a curious mind to delve into the layers of spice, earth and... Read More »

2009 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino Top Pick!
2009 Mastrojanni Brunello di Montalcino

90 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty wine, with good freshness and solid overall balance for the year. Sweet tobacco, dried herbs, smoke and spice meld together nicely in the glass. Although a bit compact and forward, the 2009 offers lovely drinking today and should develop nicely for the next decade or so. In 2009, Mastrojanni did not produce their flagship Brunello Schiena d'Asino; that fruit went into this wine." (2/2015)90 points James Suckling: "A clean, fresh red with dried-strawberry and lemon-rind character. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a chewy finish. Alway ...Read More »
