Brunello, and other Tuscan reds, are home base for me. I enjoy wines from many other regions as well, and love to organize,and participate in, wine themed dinners in NYC. Twitter @brunellobob

Top Brunello

I am inclined toward the more rustic and elegant manifestations of Brunello, and believe these to be the greatest expression of the DOCG. This style has the lion's share on the list, with Soldera standing solidly above all others. Still, you will find wines on the list that have been labeled by some as  "New World" or "Modern". These are here for two reasons: 1- They are complex, well made wines that are just plain impressive. 2- They are built like a brick house, with all the components in place for long aging and great complexity when mature. The classic example of the latter is Valdicava. While prices are a bit varied, each is worth the price of admission. This list shows specific examples from producers that I would recommend in most vintages. Enjoy!

Average price: $158.69 from 2 stores
Dried herbs, aromatic sandalwood, lavender, tea, and grilled meats, all enveloped in a dusty warm cherry aroma. There is a soft texture and richness to the nose. On the palate, roasted black cherry, more sandalwood and tea with Asian spices and a bit of milk chocolate. The palate has a roundness to it. Persistent and seamless with an integrated parade of complexity that doesn't let up. Complete balance of acid, tannin and fruit with a long aromatic finish.Really a stand out Brunello.
