Whittling down a list to 10 top producers is always difficult and is bound to disappoint some folks. Heck, even I’m a little disappointed, my favorite producer of sub-$100 Brunello didn’t make the list. What a crummy wine dude author!
Of course, that producer’s Brunello is one penny under my pricing threshold if I’m lucky, so it was an obvious omission to make. I’ve tried to be fair here but keep in mind that this list represents the wines that I buy.
I love Sangiovese, it is one of the two most frequently consumed wines in my life, but I don’t love them all!
