Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino Manachiara 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little buttery on the nose with notes of sweet oak, spicy beef broth and extract and an assertive wildflower note that emerges with time. This had nice acids and really good cut in the mouth yet remained a bit raw feeling throughout the tasting. It’s young and a touch simple with attractive strawberry fruit that finishes with a zesty, mineral and herb edge. 87pts

This also had fantastic color with great depth and a lively red/garnet core - what a seductive nose with roasted yellow fruits, caramel, spicy clay notes, red licorice candy, red raspberry, and a hint of roast meat offer up a particularly complex array in the mouth this is vibrant and juicy with intense green herb notes over structured, vibrant fruit that features notes of roasted ranier cherries, red twizzler, and red raspberry all leading to a delicate finish which is showing the first signs cracking up with it's bare peak at the remaining acidity and slightly coarse tannins. A very complete package none-the-less and an excellent aged Brunello.

Forward, warm and toasty, spiced cherry leads the way on the nose. Like a roasted cherry cobbler, with aromatic herbs, dried flowers, and forest floor. Very nice complexity. The palate has firm, fresh, black cherry,with solid tannins, some espresso notes (which also develop later on the nose) and a long clean finish. Quite a nice ride. A blend of grapes sourced from twenty different vineyards, with an average vine age of 20 years. 12 months in barrique (new & used) followed by 18 months in botti. 150,000 bottles produced. Yummy and serious at the same time. 91Pts

The nose showed sour red berries and sweet spice in a bittersweet performance. On the palate, red berries and herbs were on display, yet it came across one-dimensional and ultimately disappointing through the finish.

Tasted this with Osso Buco Portabello against a California Sangio from Brunello clone. My wife said a little thin, GdP has it right that it's a little simple. I expected meatier, deeper mouthfeel. Light blackberry. Not too oaky at all. Good, but not great.

Shows blackberry and black cherry aromas. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and lots of dense fruit. Builds on the palate. Juicy and rich. Has more concentration than the average Brunello. RP93

TASTING NOTES: This deep, ruby-red wine has intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. The wine shows a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors, framed by noble, velvety tannins. Though impressive now, this wine will benefit from aging. HARVEST NOTES: 2009 began with a cool, rainy spring, which allowed the soil to store water. A hot spell in early June caused vegetative growth and set back aroma development and phenolic maturation of skins and seeds. Favorable weather allowed the fruit to stay on the vine until mid-October, however, which remedied this delayed ripening and yielded good fruit. REGION: Italy / Tuscany / Montalcino Tenute Silvio Nardi’s classic Brunello is a blend of the finest grapes from the Manachiara and Casale del Bosco estates. Silvio Nardi follows the strict DOCG laws required of a classified Brunello di Montalcino. Yield is limited; only the top 70% of the grapes is used to make the wine. The fruit is carefully handpicked and sorted. Fermentation and maceration takes at least 24 days (varies with parcel) at controlled temperature of less than 30°C. Aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barriques (Allier) before 18 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Bottle aged at least 12 months before release. FOOD PAIRING: Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper. - Winery PH: 3.51 ACIDITY: 5.70 g/l ABV: 14.50%

Black licorice, cola and cherry liqueur open the nose and segue to black currant and crème de cassis aromas, then forest floor, bramble and Spanish cedar. This wine is linear, crisp and tight on the palate, with firm tannins. Give the wine five more years to soften. - M.L. Cherry and plum fruit are enhanced by tobacco and black tea accents in this firm red. Leans toward drying tannins in the balance. Moderate length. Best from 2013 through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 25,000 cases made. -BS The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty wine laced with dried cherries, crushed flowers, licorice and spices. The wine's mid-weight structure and modest depth both suggest it is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. Medium cherry-red. Moderately ripe aromas of red cherry, menthol, herbs and flowers. Supple but a bit diffuse, showing decent sweetness but in need of a bit more intensity and depth. Fini...

Tenuta Nardi Brunello di Montalcino 2004 - Casale del Bosco: Tenuta Nardi Brunello di Montalcino 2004 - Rotwein von Casale del BoscoDieser Toskaner erscheint als klarer, brillanter Wein von lebhaftem Granatrot. Der Brunello di Montalcino besitzt ein intensives, anhaltendes, umfangreiches Bukett. Der Weinfreund nimmt den Duft von Unterholz, aromatischen Hölzern, Beeren, gemischter Konfitüre und ein wenig Vanille wahr. Dieser Wein präsentiert dem Gaumen einen eleganten, harmonischen Körper, Kraft und Rasse, er ist trocken und mit großer Länge im Abgang. Aufgrund seiner Eigenschaften kann der Brunello di Montalcino lange gelagert werden und wird mit der Zeit immer besser. Er passt ausgezeichnet zu Wildragout, Hacksteak mit dunkler Sauce, Toma-Käse, Parmesan, toskanischem Schafskäse und sollte vor dem Genuß etwa 1 Stunde belüftet werden.Die Weinbereitung beinhaltet hier mindestens 20 Tage lang Gärung und Mazeration, je nach Parzelle, bei einer kontrollierter Temperatur von 30°C. Danach erfolgt der Ausbau des Weines durch eine zwölfmonatige Reifung in zum Teil neuen und zum Teil gebrauchten Barriques aus französischer Eiche (Allier), anschließend 12 Monate in großen Fässern aus slawonischer Eiche. Zuletzt mindestens sechs Monate Flaschenreifung.    Weingut: Casale del BoscoLand: ItalienRegion: ToskanaRebsorte: SangioveseInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,5 g/lRestsüße: 2,0 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 18°C Rotwein > Italien > Toskana

Made in an accessible feminine style. Medium in body the wine flows from the glass with layers of sweet perfumed fruit showing notable balance and harmony. The wine closes beautifully with an inviting long finish.
