Natalie's Score: 93/100

Pleasantly bitter black fruit, violets and tar: trust me, this is a good thing. Delicious: one of the best brunellos I've tasted in a long time. This wine is unfiltered, which gives it lots of character and stuffing, and almost a dark, feral nature. Decant for 2 hours, then put on some Italian baroque music.

Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: ravioli, autumn hodge-podge, chili, bastilles, onion dip.

Reviews and Ratings

This dark Brunello opens with thick concentration and balsam notes of cola, humus and eucalyptus. Despite the thick extraction, the berry aromas are delicate, with lingering wild raspberry and forest fruit. The wine shows a nice juxtaposition between its bold, masculine side and an elegant feminine one. The mouthfeel is bold, plush and powerful. Special designation: Cellar Selection. Score: 96.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
