Description

The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is beautifully bright and stitched up with extreme focus and sharpness. Sangiovese has this gorgeous ability to show linearity and lift, but it remains elegant and tight at the same time. This wine accomplishes all of this, and that's saying a lot given the heat and drought of this vintage. The acidity is bright and the finish is long and smooth with citrusy end notes of blood orange followed by wild rose and lilac. Fruit comes from a 4.5-hectare site with sand and galestro soils. Production is exactly 15,014 bottles. Maria Laura Vacca Brunelli and her team harvested about one week early in 2017 to capture that varietal freshness. 96/100 RP

Producer Information: Gianni Brunelli

The formidable and passionate Laura Brunelli runs both the estate and the family’s fantastic restaurant in Siena, Le Logge – a must visit if... you can get a booking! With very small land holdings (4.5ha in total) this is truly a handmade labour of love. They have two sites, one on the Northern side of Montalcino (Le Chiuse di Sotto) and one on the Southern side (Podernovone), allowing them to blend the cool elegant style of the North with the power and
depth of the South. This winery remains one of Handford Wines’ perennial favourite Montalcino producers for both quality and value for money.
