Combining our two estate crus of Canalicchio and Montosoli, this wine represents the best snapshot as to the overall quality of the 2017 vintage. Where our Brunello ‘La Cascaccia’ is a reflection of a single expression of place, this classico Brunello shows the beauty and elegance of the marriage of two of our top cru sites.
Press Notes :
95 points, Vinous Media – “The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is wildly perfumed, dusty and exotic, with balsam herbs, savory spices, red currants and plums coming across as so pretty yet rich and potent. A silky display of sour wild berries contrasted by candied citrus wows the senses as the 2017 plays a zesty sweet-and-sour act upon the palate. It’s long, youthfully chewy, yet still remarkably fresh, with rosy florals and tart, tart cherries giving way to chiseled tannins through the finale. This is a beautiful rendition of the 2017 vintage, one that takes the dry warmth of the year and expresses it with tremendous energy and verve. What's more, I revisited this bottle over the course of 36 hours and it only got better with time.” – Eric Guido
