    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our philosophy is to produce a Brunello that represents the best traditions in structure and aromatics with elegance, harmony and fruit.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Love the nose on this with blackberries, sweet tobacco, blueberries. Full body, with soft and silky tannins and a light jammy finish. Lots of dark fruits. Long finish. Loads going on in this one. Give it three to five years. Or more.

    Though rich and round, the cherry, black currant and violet flavors in this Brunello are pure and focused. This is beautifully textured, displaying bright acidity and refined tannins that drive the long mineral aftertaste. Best from 2012 through 2025.

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages. A blast of iron, smoke, tar, licorice and new leather inform the deep, intense finish. This is a hugely promising, brilliant Brunello from proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese, but it needs to be buried in the cellar for at least a few years. Readers who can’t wait should open the wine a few hours in advance, which will allow the fruit to emerge. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.

    The Wine Advocate

    Rich and complex with a long aging future ahead, this beautiful Brunello from Valdicava offers tight, crisp acidity, solid tannins and a bouquet that is richly packed with black fruit, cherry, spice, and tobacco aromas. Pair this wine with succulent cuts of beef.
