Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

Wine Type: Red Wine

Country: Italy

Region: Toscana

Grapes: 100% Sangiovese Grosso

Tasting Notes: Bright ruby red with violet reflections. On the nose it is intense, fresh, fruity with typical variety of violet, cherry, and plum. On the palate there are soft tannins and good acidity. Gentle and soft with intense length.

Food Pairings: Meat, game and cheese.

James Suckling: “This has an attractive nose of dried roses, cloves, orange zest, truffles, cherry stones and nutmeg. It’s medium-to full-bodied, with an elegant, fine yet firm tannin frame. Balanced and poised. Try in 2024.”

International Wine Report: “The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Antonluca displays fresh, inviting aromas of red berries and dried cherries that come together with spices, dried herbs, fresh cut florals and hints of licorice. On the palate this is medium-bodied and nicely structured with gorgeous silky tannins. It continues to impress showing wonderful balance, with a lovely touch of acidity leading up to the sleek finish. This is drinking beautifully now and should become even more compelling with some bottle age.”
