Padelletti's Riserva is crafted from 40-50-year-old vines. It sees a long five week maceration and lengthy ageing in large oak casks. It's a wondrously traditional Brunello from one of the region's pioneers, also demonstrating one of the vintage's most elegant offerings. Precise floral nuances of rose, violet and mint blossom follow through on the palate, with intriguing earth tones appearing. Surprisingly fine yet assertive tannins and invigorating acidity carry the wine. Drinking Window 2019 - 2034 Michaela Morris
This classic, fragrant Brunello boasts aromas of new leather, pipe tobacco, fragrant purple flower and balsamic notes of eucalyptus. It's elegant and savory, doling out juicy wild cherry, raspberry preserve, cinnamon and star anise set against firm polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced and ensures good aging potential. A lovely wine. Drink 2020-2032.CELLAR SELECTION KO
Vivid medium red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, orange peel, minerals, violet and licorice. Densely packed and suave, showing a silky texture but coming across as youthfully tight and linear today. Enticing ripe acidity lifts and extends the dark fruit and mineral flavors on the lively and long finish. (ID)
Grilled nuts and poached cherries with roasted meats, potpourri and earthy nuances. There's impressive depth to the palate with succulent dried dark cherry flavors. A smooth nutty finish. Riper but a very classic style. Try from 2022.JS
Padelletti's 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva shows brawn and muscle, yet the wine is never too heavy or dense. In terms of the Padelletti house style, this is definitely one of the most dense and opulent wines I've seen from this family in recent years. The hot summer weather and dry winds in 2012 have contributed to the wine's dark and fruity character. It ends with dried cherry and toasted almond. (ML)
