I like to drink wine more than I used to...
Don Corleone, The Godfather

 

 

The wines that I like to drink seem to all start with a "B", Barolo, Barbaresco, Burgundy, Bordeaux and of course Brunello.

Brunello is the wine with top billing in Tuscany is for the last half of century, a DOCG from a fortress town south of Siena with reds of legendary power and longevity that have commanded lofty prices.  The wines of this world-renowned region of Tuscany were conceived by the Biondi Santi family a century ago, today Brunello di Montalcino is produced under scores of labels, representing small farms, established estates and even international corporations.  By the turn of the 21st century, there are over 300 producers of Brunello di Montalcino, mostly small farmers and family estates, producing nearly 330,000 cases a year.

Brunello is Montalcino is one of the hottest topics in the world of Italian wine today.  With wine magazines like: The Wine Spectator, James Suckling, The Wine Advocate and International Wine Cellar calling the 2010 vintage from Montalcino " One of The Greatest Vintage Ever", many collectors and wine enthusiasts will be scrambling to pick up the best wines from this stellar year so I have included on this e-mail the remainder of 2010 vintage wines that we have in stock and all the other Brunello di Montalcino in the store.

 

This is our pre-event for the new release tasting that features the newest releases from Montalcino which will be 2013 this year.  All of the wines at this tasting will be 10+ years old and even though Brunello is held back for 5 years by law the greatest vintages need another 10+ years in the cellar to reach their peak years of drinkability.

Toni Lampasone will be making a few small courses to accompany the tasting wines.  This is a pre-poured sit down tasting and there are only 14 seats available, the fee is $150+ tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463.

1995 Canalicchio Di Sopra Riserva Brunello Di Montalcino
Price: $134.50    Your Price: $118.36

A classic example of Brunello with soft smooth tannins, this wine is now fully evolved with the classic black tar and truffle aromas along with a host of dried herbs, sage and rosemary.  The wine opened up nicely and revealed some pretty dried cherry fruit along with some meaty notes and dried flowers, everything in perfect balance today.  The wine finishes fresh and lively and with the right food this wine will really came alive, the fruit being on the undercard with the wine now at 19 years old.  You want to decanter this wine for 30 minutes and serve it with dinner or some reggiano parmesan cheese.  A classic vintage for Montacino and although it is fully mature, it has the balance to last another decade or more in your cellar.  Finish 45+  Most Excellent +

1999 Canalicchio Di Sopra Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva
Price: $195.00    Your Price: $156.00
Quantity in Stock: 5

(94 Points) The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva made a terrific showing thanks to its all-embracing personality. There’s a real sense of abundance and generosity here that starts with the wine’s richly textured mouthfeel and darkly concentrated appearance. The aromas have certainly moved into the third and final stage of their evolution with smoked bacon and saddle bag but there’s enough pressed fruit and crushed flower to keep it from feeling one-dimensional. The mouthfeel is lean and elegant with surprising focus and clarity. Decant the wine three to four hours prior to serving. Drink: 2014-2028.   Wine Advocate #211, Feb 2014

92 points  "The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Donna Olga is the selection from the home vineyards, very fresh and sweet with ample raspberry fruit and notes of chocolate, solid and deep in flavor, packed and polished and very long. Drink: 2005-2018." Robert Parker:

2001 Fanti Tenuta San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino

(96 points) Fabulous aromas of blackberry, cherry, meat and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with masses of velvety tannins and loads of fruit. A blockbuster. Best after 2010. *Top 100 Wines of 2006* (JS) (4/2006) Wine Spectator

Talenti Brunello di Montalcino Pian di Conte 2001

2001 Talenti Brunello di Montalcino Pian Conti

Consulting oenologist Carlo Ferrini has turned out a beautiful wine at this historic estate, a property which he speaks of in effusive terms. Talenti’s sublime 2001 Brunello Pian di Conte exhibits a deep, translucent ruby color. It opens with captivating, vibrant aromatics, with notes of freshly cut roses, raspberries and licorice. Gorgeously expressive yet delicate on the palate, it offers layers of dark fruit, earthiness and sweet oak supported by a refined, classic structure, with exceptional length and fine, silky tannins on the fresh finish. It is a superb effort. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2021. 93 points. Antonio Galloni Wine Advocate

2003 Canailicchio Di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 375ml

In one of the best exposed parts of montalcino's vine growing areas, Canalicchio di Sopra's vineyards cover 15 hectares between canalicchio di sopra and le gode di montosoli, cultivated with the help of modern equipment and ancient traditional methods. According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This family-run estate makes an excellent Brunello from its 15 hectares of vineyards in the Canalicchio zone of Montalcino." (12/06) 91(+?) points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated deep red. Aromas of crushed and dried fruits, flowers and incense. Fat, broad and rich, in a distinctly lush style. Initially showed a chewy fruit skin quality and some tougher tannins but revealed lovely vinosity and a fresh bitter cherry character with aeration. A serious, structured, energetic wine with plenty of dimension and length." (Jul/Aug 08)

"I tasted this about a year ago at the winery and I was blown away. This time I tasted it in a blind tasting in Tuscany and it stood above the rest. Amazing aromas of blueberries and flowers, with black truffles and pie. Foie gras, mushrooms and white truffles too. Powerful, with great depth of gorgeous fruit and ultra-fine tannins. It fills your mouth with fruit and ripe tannins. Complex and long. A breathtaking wine. Truly glorious. Better in 2015. " - 100 Points, James Suckling
