I've always said that Jan Hendrik Erbach is a maniac when it comes to the details. This wine is normally called "Vigneti del Versante," with the Italian word for vineyards ("vigneti") in plural because fruit comes from more than one site, but just this one time, the wine is called "Vigneto" (in the singular tense) because fruit was sourced from a single vineyard instead. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneto del Versante sees fruit sourced from the Scopeta vineyard (planted in 2003), and this single-vineyard expression offers spicy fruit with dark berries and plum. The wine shows great fiber and density, with much of that power coming from the heavier soils of the vineyard site. This is a beautiful expression from a difficult vintage. The wine will be released this autumn. (ML)
Bright red. Flint and rosemary nuances complement the red cherry and mineral aromas and flavors. Juicy and fresh, this medium-bodied Brunello showcases a refined mouthfeel and a typical cool-climate personality. A hint of sweet spices on the long finish is very typical of Sesta, where Pian dell’Orino’s Scopeta vineyard is located (in 2014, the Brunello Vigneti del Versante is a blend of grapes from the Scopeta and Bassolino di Sopra vineyards). Only 1,700 bottles made compared to 9,000 in very good vintages.ID
