Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino 2012 3.0 LT

95 Wine Advocate
(2/28/2017) "Il Poggione is a Brunello superstar and a vintage like this reveals every reason why that affirmation is true. From the second the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino pours into the glass, you know you are in for something special. The wine is darkly saturated and rich in appearance. Absent are those slightly amber or browning hues you often get with Sangiovese in a hot vintage. Nor does the wine show flat or tired characteristics. Instead, the quality of fruit is vibrant and rich. This is a healthy, generous and exuberant Brunello with dark density and succulent fruit flavors that are followed by integrated spice and tobacco. The balance is impressive and one thing you get here is fresh acidity. This is not to be underestimated, because the acidity quota in the 2012 vintage across the appellation is not as high or evident as usual. This is one of the year's best Brunellos."

Caprili "AdAlberto" Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2010

(3/3/2016) "Caprili owns some of the most beautiful vineyards in Montalcino near Soldera (Case Basse) and Angelo Gaja's Pieve di Santa Restituta. The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva AdAlberto is a tight and powerful wine that does a great job of capturing the ideal growing conditions of the vintage. The wine is slightly closed and tightly wound at this point, but Caprili has a proven track record for long aging potential. It promises a slow evolution to those who have the patience to wait. Dark fruit, spice, cola and grilled herb rise to the forefront. In the mouth, the wine shows rich texture and plump, rounded tannins. I tasted this wine 24 hours after opening the bottle, and it showed a beautiful and increasingly elegant personality."

Uccelliera Brunello di Montalcino 2012

96 Wine Advocate
(2/28/2017) "I am always such a big fan of Andrea Cortonesi's work. Like his previous releases, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows an uncanny sense of continuity and consistency with past releases. This steady stylistic focus is one of the best reasons to buy Uccelliera Brunello. The wine is dark and rich in appearance. Fruit from this vintage was smaller than usual and Andrea jokes that during the 2012 growing season you could hardly call it "Sangiovese Grosso," the name of the Sangiovese clone used in Montalcino. It is normally characterized by larger berry size, but not in this warm and dry vintage. Fruit was concentrated and smaller instead. The wine's explosive flavor profile demonstrates this fact. Blackberry and dark fruit segues to spice, tobacco and balsam herb."

Voliero Brunello di Montalcino 2012

94+ Wine Advocate
(2/28/2017) "Voliero is a second brand made by Uccelliera's Andrea Cortonesi. It's slightly more affordable but that's a tricky argument to make given the new sky high price points I'm seeing across the denomination. The Voliero 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a very pretty expression with dark fruit and an impressive sense of purity and primary fruit authenticity. At its core, you will encounter savory tones of spice, tobacco and leather. The bouquet also offers those beautifully polished Sangiovese-driven aromas of licorice, blue violets and balsam herb. The mouthfeel is succulent and rich. This is a very respectable Brunello that should age forward for at least ten years. Drink Date: 2018 - 2028."

Armilla Brunello di Montalcino 2012

95 Wine Enthusiast
(4/2017) "You could get lost in the enticing fragrance of this wine thanks to wild berry, blue flower, baking spice, chopped herb and saddle leather aromas. The smooth, elegantly structured palate is just as inviting, doling out juicy black cherry, raspberry, cinnamon and white pepper flavors. Polished tannins and fresh acidity lend balance and support. An impressive effort from this winery - one of Montalcino's little known gems."

Caprili Brunello di Montalcino 2011

(2/2016) "A dark, fleshy wine Caprili's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino wraps around the palate with sweet dark cherries, plums, tobacco, menthol, licorice and spices. Ripe, silky tannins and succulent fruit give the wine much of its open-knit, inviting personality. The warmth of the year comes through on the finish, where a kick of macerated cherry and a touch of warming alcohol add the final shades of nuance. The 2011 will drink well with minimal cellaring. Today, it is quite expressive for a young Brunello."

(5/2015) "Alluring aromas suggest perfumed berry, pressed flower, leather and forest floor. The vibrant palate delivers wild cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, white pepper and savory herb alongside firm, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Hand-crafted by a tiny gem of a winery located in the superb Santa Restituta area, it's radiant, well balanced and loaded with finesse. Drink 2018-2030. Cellar Selection."

Piombaia Brunello di Montalcino 2010

A delicious small-batch Brunello from the remarkable 2010 vintage!
91 Our Score
(7/2015) This third generation family-run estate produced only 500 cases of this outstanding, biodynamically farmed 2010 Brunello. Our sample drank wonderfully over a period of three days, becoming softer and more complex with each passing hour. When first opened, powerful, grippy tannins and pure, precise flavors of dried red fruits dominate the experience. On the second day, the aromatic intensity blew us away, with complex notes of rocky earth, dried tobacco, baking spice, cured meat and dried red flowers, while the mouthfeel became softer and more voluptuous. This is unmistakably Brunello and totally delicious. What an incredible value!
