TASTING NOTES

"A very ripe style with prune, berry and salted-nut aromas and flavors. Full body, savory intensity and a long, flavorful finish. Lots of juicy, fabulous fruit. Shows the greatness of the vineyard. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli provides us with one of the most beautiful tastes of Brunello in 2011. The secret here is that fruit is sourced from the Montosoli cru in the northern side of the appellation that performed very nicely in this warm vintage. The wine reaches excellent balance between power and elegance. It leaves a statement but never feels overwhelming. That intensity is presented in terms of fruit freshness, cherry, blackberry and currant. It also comes forth as spice, tobacco and leather. The mouthfeel is exceedingly smooth and silky. The tannins are integrated and soft. Montosoli is planted to a special clone that is grafted over when the vines die. The clone has never been replaced. Because the vineyard is located on the north side of the appellation, it was protected from the heat this vintage. This wine will be released in April 2016."

"Complex aromas and flavors of macerated cherry, plum, eucalyptus, tobacco and mineral are the hallmarks of this sweet yet structured Brunello. Balanced and approachable now, yet this should develop well. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2030. 1,100 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Tasted blind. Dark ruby with bright orange rim. Garden herbs, spice and deep brooding fruit. Amazing concentration of sweet fruit and firm tannins to support it. Very ripe for the vintage and still needs to shed its youthfulness. Long and a little unpolished." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
