Winemaker Notes

The wine has a deep, ruby-red color and intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. On the palate, the wine has a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors framed by noble, velvety tannins. Though impressive now, this wine will benefit from aging.

I like the aromas of ripe fruit, smoked meat and orange peel. The wine is full-bodied, with chewy tannins that are dusty and ripe. Dense texture at the end. Needs a little more bottle age. Try in 2014.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni

The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is lovely. Tobacco, dried herbs, cedar, plums and cloves are nicely layered in the glass. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support a mid-weight finish laced with expressive floral notes. In 2008 Nardi didn’t feel conditions were ideal to bottle their top two selections, so the Brunello includes juice that would otherwise have gone into the Manachiara and Poggio Doria. Nardi’s 2008 should drink well upon release and for another decade beyond that. Vinifications lasted around 22-23 days. Nardi preferred not to go too long in 2008, fearing over-extraction given that the maturation of skins and seeds wasn’t perfect. The 2008 spent one year in French oak barrels, 25% new, followed by one year in cask. All of the parcels were vinified separately but ultimately were blended into the straight Brunello.

Wine Enthusiast

Bright cherry cola and black currant gives this Brunello a plump and fruity personality that is difficult to find in the wines of 2008. Those fruit notes are raw, bold and are followed by a soft touch of milk chocolate or vanilla. The wine shows a creamy, velvety texture with a point of acidity and alcoholic heat.
