Brunello di Montalcino Lisini Tuscany 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points James Suckling: What a dreamy nose of crushed berries and dried flowers. Perfumes too. Then changes to Indian spices and dark fruits. Full bodied, with super well integrated tannins and a classy, long finish. So well integrated. Just a joy to taste. Better in 2013. (1/15/11)

Lisini The farm covers an area of ​​154 hectares and is located in the southern part of Montalcino, 8 km from it and 1 km from the hamlet of Sant'Angelo in Colle. The happy position of the vineyards, which stretch for nearly 20 hectares, associated with the great quality of the soil cool and porous Eocene, allow an exceptional quality of the grapes which produce one of the best Brunello di Montalcino. In particular, the vineyards open to ocean currents of the Maremma have a special microclimate, very different from other areas of the town, consisting of reduced rainfall and absence of fog. The average altitude of 350 msl vineyards is optimal for the cultivation of Sangiovese Grosso, the only grape variety used in the Company's vineyards. In the years preceding the boom of Brunello di Montalcino, the Lisini Company was known for the quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil product quality that resulted, and still comes, from the same happy geographical and climatic characteristics that determine the quality of the grapes. If the geographic location and exposure of the vineyards play a primary role in the achievement of quality wine, an equally important role is played by the people who have worked for years with passion and dedication in order to keep its products at the highest levels.  Read less

This is awesome on the nose, with a perfumed character and layers of herbs, medicinal notes, tobacco, perhaps a hint of brett and complicating notes of shoe polish and leather. On the palate, there is deep vein of medicinal black cherry fruit here, wrapped up in notes of tree bark and licorice. This is deep and powerful, yet bright and faceted. 93pts

\ What a dreamy nose of crushed berries and dried flowers. Perfumes too. Then changes to Indian spices and dark fruits. Full bodied, with super well integrated tannins and a classy, long finish. So well integrated. Just a joy to taste. Better in 2013.\
