TASTING NOTES

"This Brunello comes from one of the finest single vineyards in the Montalcino appellation. Last year, I awarded this wine 100 points. This year, I encountered many similar characteristics to remind me of that unforgettable masterpiece. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is an excellent wine that offers enormous variety purity with bright berry aromas, pressed violets, wet earth, cola and powdered licorice. The wine is translucent, brilliant and luminous with bright ruby highlights. It's a medium-bodied expression with grace, buoyancy and enormous integrity. If you love Sangiovese, you will adore Madonna delle Grazie." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #223

"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is quite a bit darker and deeper than the straight Brunello, but it retains that super-classic element of weightlessness that is such a signature of this site. Macerated dark cherries, hard candy, menthol, licorice and cloves are some of the signatures in this exotic, intensely perfumed Brunello from Il Marroneto. The Madonna delle Grazie is not necessarily a better or more complex wine than the straight Brunello, but rather a different expression of this site on the northern side of town."

"Cherry and raspberry flavors play off the tobacco, spice and earth notes in this taut, athletic red. Nicely balanced, with a long finish echoing the fruit and tobacco details. Best from 2018 through 2029. 400 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Tasted blind. Dark impenetrable ruby. Hints of spice and brooding fruit but otherwise firmly locked on the nose. Intense yet compact fruit and richly tannic. Almost Barolo-like in its structure. Real stuff for ageing, but at the moment a little brutal." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
