Lisini is one of Montalcino's oldest wine estates. Its first wine was bottled in 1967, coinciding with that of the original twelve producers of the Brunello di Montalcino Consorzio, which was founded in 1963. Cement tanks arrived in 1973, with Mario Rossi Ferrini the enologist during the 1970s. Today, signor Filippo Paoletti is responsible for making the five traditional wines, using cement and large oak casks: San Biagio IGT Toscano Rosso, Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Ugolaia Brunello di Montalcino Riserva (a single vineyard wine).
Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2014
“Located near Sant’Angelo in Colle, Lisini’s 24ha of vines surround the winery at 300-400 metres above sea level. While they usually harvest during the third week of September, in 2014 picking started mid-October. Discreet yet well-defined aromas of sage, red cherry, blood orange peel and wet earth gradually unfold on the nose. The palate is just as captivating, offering brightness, purity and polish with ripe, fine-boned tannins and juicy acidity. This is all finesse. A standout for the vintage.” Drinking window 2019 – 2029. 94 points, Decanter.
