Brunelli, Brunello Riserva
(boo-NAY-le)

 

Tasting Notes: Luca Brunelli is making some of the finest “Brunelli” in Montalcino. Very well reviewed and exceptionally inspired winemaking, his Riserva is one of the best wines of the decade from Italy. This truly exceptional Brunello satisfies even the toughest of critics. It is exceptionally powerful, yet elegant, made in a neo-classic style that is pleasing from the first sip. Typical aromas of dried morello cherry, black tea, rosemary, plum, soy intermingle into a palate layered with delicious, refined cooperage that tastes, well, decadent.
