Canalicchio di Sopra

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

We had the 2011 Vintage on 10/4-5/22. After aeration, this wonderful Brunello boasts a bouquet of red fruit and leather. The palate has red cherry, raspberry, leather and tobacco. Medium bodied and Old World. Very enjoyable. — 2 days ago

Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi)

Riserva Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2006

This was one of the better Brunelli I have tried this year. Structured for the long run showing laser like focus, precision, cherry, berry fruit with an inky, cedar, menthol spice followed by tobacco. Could drink this all night. — 5 days ago

Tenuta Col d'Orcia

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

Solid. It did improve over time but was shallow throughout. Bouquet was all alcohol not much more. Quaffable but nothing to write about. — 21 days ago

Poggio Antico

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2015

2015: 9.3-9.4. Outstanding Brunello, still drinking young (was stored properly in cooled room in wine store), with loads of concentrated cherry fruit and complementary but still-firm tannins. Starting to develop more complex flavors of leather and iron. An mouthful of high-quality Sangiovese; will be a knockout with more age. $60 at WL. — 4 days ago
