Brunello 2016 Pre-Release Offer

“I learned a long time ago as a wine critic that great years are years when everything is outstanding from the lesser-known properties to the most prestigious ones. The 2016 and 2015 vintages certainly achieved this, making this pair of years the greatest ever for Brunello di Montalcino.”

James Suckling (, 2020)

The 2016 vintage will be remembered as a benchmark year for Montalcino, one where the wines are defined by an intense natural fruit concentration and ripeness combined with piercingly fresh framing acids making for wonderfully focused wines that exhibit poise, balance and all round harmony.

For Brunello lovers, this is undoubtedly the finest vintage release since the classic and similarly structured 2010 expressions which launched the region of Montalcino into the mainstream of global fine wine collectability. Whatever comparisons the critics make, the 2016s look to be the greatest vintage offering of Brunello in the 20+ years that Handford Wines has been selling this region’s wines en primeur.
