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 2013 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 2013 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 2014 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 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com
