    Winemaker's Notes:

    The designation Rennina (rehn-NEE-nah) first appears in the High Middle Ages and is derived from the late-Roman name of the estate, Fundus Rescianum, denoting a state-owned farm. Since the Gaja family's acquisition of the historic estate in 1994, three growing sites have been devoted to the cultivation of Sangiovese grapes for the production of Brunello di Montalcino: Santo Pietro (St. Peter), Castagno (Chestnut Tree), and Pian dei Cerri (Turkish Oak Flats). Here, lime-rich subsoils, southwest exposure, and ventilation arriving from the Tyrrhenian sea to the west deliver well-balanced Brunello di Montalcino, defined by its characteristic red fruit notes, minerality, and polished tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Put this beautiful Brunello in your cellar for at least 10–15 more years. Rennina opens with bold oak and cherry tones (that need more time to integrate), followed by plump, rich blackberry flavors, chocolate, leather and dark spice. It's a wine characterized by impressive density and opulence.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Rennina flows across the palate with layers of sensual, perfumed fruit. Soft, gracious and impeccably balanced, the 2007 Rennina impresses for its overall harmony and sense of grace. Sweet red berries, crushed flowers and spices wrap around the feminine finish. This is a very pretty not to mention hugely appealing wine from Pieve Santa Restituta. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

    Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of dark cherry, Indian spices, cocoa powder and licorice. Sweet, plush and seamless, with surprisingly open-knit flavors of cherry, plum and spices. This wonderfully lush, silky Brunello finishes smooth, sweet and very long, with noble tannins and very good lift.

    The nose is wonderful, with rose petals and dark fruits and hints of sandalwood. Full-bodied, with super silky tannins and a chewy finish. Give this until 2015 to soften and show you what it really has.

    James Suckling

    A rich, beefy style, with sweet spices accenting cherry, leather and tobacco flavors. Dense and firm, with sweet fruit matching the tannins on the long finish. Best from 2014 through 2028. 200 cases imported.
