Natalie's Score: 94/100

Such an exotic nose of wild violets, feral underbrush, truffle haunted forests and a mysterious smile of satisfaction. This Brunello has many years ahead of it, unless of course, you can't resist drinking it. A DOCG wine that has such lovely replays of flavour across the palate, including coffee, spice, mocha and dark berry. This robust red wine cries out for a hearty meat dish. Listen to this wine and you'll have a terrific meal!

Brunello Di Montalcino food pairings: roast venison steak, rabbit tenderloin en croute.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Incredible! This Brunello is well structured and shows complexity, body, balance and length. It is excitement in a glass! Aromas begin with alluring notes of dried dates, fig, and apricot. Sweet baking spices, tobacco leaf, cocoa, mocha and an earthy minerality also develop after moments in the glass. The palate recalls these concentrated and complex notes from the aromas while the balance/structure of this wine is nothing short of harmonious. It's full bodied with high mouthwatering acidity, polished developed tannins, and a long sweet spice finish. Enjoy pairing this wine with braised lamb or veal shanks (Osso Bucco style). Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Lazzeretti's Brunello Di Montalcino (2008) is so aromatic. Black cherry and violets on the nose and plenty more on the palate with good acidity and a long finish that keeps you interested and wanting more. Yes, it is pricey. And you are worth it. Pair with venison tenderloin. - Community Wine Reviews
