Online Tasting Friday 27th August 7PM
They are like a well-muscled black stallion in its prime. They are dark yet radiant, expressive, nearly explosive at times, yet pure, poised, and structured… I frankly cannot remember the last time I tasted young wines from Montalcino that possessed such symmetry from start to finish. Eric Guido – Vinous
Following the much-lauded 2015 vintage, to hear top critics broadly talk of the 2016 eclipsing it and comparing it to the truly legendary recent vintages of 2010, 2004 and 1997 entices much eagerness to experience these wines for ourselves.
The growing season featured ample warmth for fully expressive, ripe Sangiovese but importantly, very cool nights; developing and preserving aromatics and retaining the freshness, acidity and deep tannic structure that are the hallmarks of great vintages.
Please join us as we taste through a selection of wines from some of the top rated producers of the year including the 100pt Brunelli ‘Le Chiuse di Sotto’.
