    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made from 100% Sangiovese Grosso hand harvested from the prestigious Montosoli vineyard. The extra long, 10 day maceration allows for richer color and superb concentration. Brunello Montosoli is aged for three to three and a half years in 115 year old Slavonian oak barrels.

    One of the most sought after wines from Montalcino, Montosoli is consistently a blockbuster red. Its intense ruby red color tends towards elegant garnet with age. On the nose, it shows its complex personality with a delicious blend of black cherry, raspberry, violet, licorice, vanilla and black pepper. Extremely enticin, opulent and elegant on the palate, with a warm, longlasting finish, Montosoli is a wine for special occasions.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The single-vineyard 2003 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli, from one of the region's top sites, is fresher and more vibrant than the regular bottling, with superior balance and finesse. It shows lovely plumpness, clarity and depth in its black cherries, oak, spices and tobacco. This medium to full-bodied wine should drink beautifully over the next decade or so. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.

    Wonderful purity of blackberry and plum skin with just a hint of lilacs on the nose. Full and silky, with chewy tannins and a long finish. This shows loads of smokey, gamy and length. Needs time in the bottle. My favorite of the group.
