Antonio Sanguineti, Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G.
(broo-NAY-lo dee mohn-tahl-CHEE-no)

 

Tasting Notes: Antonio Sanguineti’s Brunello is a powerful, decadent expression of Marasca cherries, black tea, coffee, and pomegranate. The tannins are smooth, silky, and integrated; this wine will age for over 20 years. Nick-named “il Maestro” by his colleagues, Antonio is a master of creating the perfectly balanced wine. We believe he’s achieved it here again, as after 42 months in French oak it is amazingly approachable.
