Brunello Di Montalcino Wine

Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. is one of the most prestigious wines in Italy. D.O.C.G. stands for Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita. These letters are on the pink collar strip on each bottle of Brunello di Montalcino. The D.O.C.G., as a category, was created in 1980 and, out of hundreds of Italian wines, there are just 45 D.O.C.G.s in all of Italy. It is an elite and exclusive category of wine with many rules and regulations, including panel tastings for quality and maximum yields. Brunello can only be made from 100% Sangiovese, known in Montalcino as Brunello, grown on authorised vineyards. There are minimum and maximum altitudes for vine cultivation and there has actually been a freeze on authorisations since 1995. The maximum yield per hectare is 7.000 kg of grapes (the conversion to wine is 68%). The wine must spend 2 years in wood and cannot be released until the fifth January after harvest – so 2004 is on sale in 2009, 2005 in 2010 and so on and so forth. One of the DOCG Read more »

  • Bdm 2001


    The fruit plays third fiddle here to the sweet & spicy soil, and truly electrifying acidity. Someone said it was a little bit corked, but it didn't matter to me, this was pretty heady stuff. Looking forward to trying this again down the line. Read More

  • Pre-Arrival Nardi Brunello 2006


    The nose showed red berries, potpourri, tobacco and spice. On the palate, I found a soft structure with red fruits. The finish was long, yet I found this Brunello to be lacking some stuffing. Read More

    The fruit shows impressive depth and richness, but it is the French oak that dominates the flavor and textural profile. Youll notice flavors of red cherry, root beer, mesquite and Indian spice. Read More

    I love this wine, it is great everynight when in the mood for it. Nice light red wine, strawberry hints over to a spice finish. Give this alittle chill for a nice summer night. I buy this wine by the case and you should too. Read More

  • Col d'Orcia Olmaia 2001


    Enjoyed this 26 March, 2011 (with excellent Mexican horse fillet). Have had this in my cellar since 2006, so some 5 years. Very dark and still intense. Nice structure with liquorice, dark berries and oak nicely integrated. Full body despite its age, very intense, however with a soft palate and smooth tannins. Has improved a lot with cellaring. S...
