Brunello di Montalcino is well known as one of the great red wines on the planet and the soon to arrive 2007 Brunello di Montalcino and 2010 Rosso di Montalcino make it clear that this area is on a roll.
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is comparable in quality to the exceptional 2006 vintage but has the additional advantage of being softer and more approachable now, while having the structure and balance to evolve and give great pleasure for another ten to fifteen years. Whether consumers are looking for a great red wine for immediate drinking or something to cellar and enjoy over the next decade, 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a great choice.
The 2010 Rosso di Montalcino are absolutely gorgeous wines that make clear that 2010 will be a great vintage for Brunello di Montalcino. These beautiful wines, typically produced from younger vines, are ready for immediate drinking and represent great value with prices one third to one half the price of their big brother Brunello siblings.
From the dozens of Brunello and Rosso available to us, I have chosen to purchase what I consider to be the best of the best ….. Uccelliera, La Serena, Le Macioche, Le Potazzine, Scopetone and Voliero which were pre-sold and Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello and Brunello Pianrosso which was not pre-sold but which is now available.
Uccelliera Brunello, possibly the Brunello of the vintage, was sold out on our pre-sell but there are still a few cases of La Serena, Le Macioche, Le Potazzine, Scopetone and Voliero still available. We also have good quantities of Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello and Brunello Pianrosso available.
Don’t miss out on the 2010 Rosso di Montalcino. These are the best Rosso di Montalcino I have ever tasted and an extraordinary value.
