Tasting Notes: "The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino shows a pretty, mid-weight appearance with shiny dark ruby highlights. The wine offers soft fruit with cherry and wild forest berry at the front. On a second wave, it delivers light spice, earthy mineral and cured tobacco. Both the fruity and the savory sides of the wine are well balanced over solid tannic support and balanced freshness. Production is 29,000 bottles."- Wine Advocate.
"A succulent, solidly built red, with converging black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, violet and chalky, mineral flavors. This is packed with fruit that resonates through the lingering aftertaste. Very nicely put together. Best from 2025 through 2045."- Wine Spectator.
"Lovely purity of fruit with aromas of peaches, plums, ripe cherries and lemons, alongside some spice box and moss. Medium to full body with fine, creamy tannins. Wonderfully juicy and approachable with a supple and seamless finish. Drink now or hold."- James Suckling.
"This is a lovely wine, bright with plenty of momentum, nothing too structured or concentrated, reflecting the vintage style. Packed with raspberry fruit, orange peel and fresh acidities in abundance. Compelling for being light on its feet while still delivering a ton of flavour. You feel the air under its heels, and it is made for food. Winemaker Pippo d'Alessandro and Alessio Sostegni, 33ha estate, owner Marcel van Poecke."- Jane Anson.
