    Chocolate covered blueberries, healthy loam, Dr. Pepper, and strawberries on the nose, which all come together harmoniously on the palate. Perfect tannin structure, supportive acidity, and a long and delicate finish. This is a beautifully unique Brunello that is sure to spark a conversation.

    This is a bold and vibrant Brunello that will especially appeal to those looking for Sangiovese with ample intensity and length. "Poggiarelli" boasts penetrating red and black fruit flavors that carry on to a lengthy finish thanks to some solid acidity. It's aged in medium-sized French barrels yet the oak is perfectly integrated allowing the fruit to shine.

    Cortonesi, née La Manella, produces this particular bottling of Brunello from a well regarded site in the Southeast corner of the denominazione. The wine is brawny, salty, savory, black fruited and built, though there is still a quality to the wine that makes you salivate and reach for another glass. I like the style, and with any meat finished with rosemary and sea salt, I imagine I would like it even more. Bravo! A fine Brunello.

    I am Lovin on the 2012 Brunelli, beautifully layered, expressive wine bursting with sweet ripe strawberries, black cherries intermingled with subtle earth and toasted oak notes, minerals and a hint of bitter chocolate on the on the finish, round and ripe tannins and a long aftertaste and really well sturture. Great for gifts, or the Holiday table.

    The nose is full of dark fruit, spiced blackberry, hints of baking spice, and some Tuscan brush. On the palate the wine has real depth of flavor, darker fruits, more saturated flavors then the savory portions sweep forward, wild mushroom, rosemary, coriander. The tannic structure begins to show, fine grain and in balance and supports the supple richness where more wild cherry and blackberry flavors come to the front spiced with bits of savory earth. The wine comes together in the finish showing lots of complexity, a rich mid palate and long balanced finish. I think this is the best wine this winery has made, it comes from a plot in the south eastern portion of Montalcino.
    Drink from 2017 to 2030
