    Winemaker's Notes:

    Following his family agricultural tradition, Andrea Cortonesi bought a property in 1986 with ideal soils for viticulture and olive groves. The vineyard extension is now approximately six hectares, the vine clones are carefully selected and vineyard density is high in order to ensure the production of top quality wines. A new winemaking facility gives Andrea additional controls to create his magnificent wines. Color: Intense ruby red Nose: Intense fruity tones of ripe cherries and prunes, floral tones of violet, chocolate Flavor: Warm, pasty, well-balanced, evident tannins, fresh, ample finish Serving suggestions: Wine for meditation, red meat, game, seasoned cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva flows with the essence of dark cherries, blackberries, flowers, violets, licorice and spices, all supported by firm, structured tannins. The 2006 boasts striking inner perfume, big fruit and a huge, explosive finish. The 2006 Riserva is surprisingly vibrant, focused and balanced for such a big wine. The Riserva was made from the estate’s highest altitude vineyards and aged one year in barrique and a second year in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.
