Valdicava Brunello 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"Enticing aromas of meat and mushroom pie mingle with rich plum and spices. Full- bodied, with silky, caressing tannins and intense fruit and mineral flavors. Well- crafted, finishing long. The flagship Brunello in 2003. The wine of the vintage. Best after 2010...95" WS Insider 02/08.

Valdicava:
Here in Montalcino the opulence of the Sangiovese grape, more than any other place in Tuscany, has lead to a darker, deeper, and more concentrated wine. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata", the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes ...

Here in Montalcino the opulence of the Sangiovese grape, more than any other place in Tuscany, has lead to a darker, deeper, and more concentrated wine. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata", the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes to fragrant, full maturity. VALDICAVA is located in the Montosoli area which is famous in Montalcino for creating wines with great balance of body and aromas. We pay the utmost attention towards maintaining the individual characteristics of our wines in order to exalt the spirit of the place, the 'genius loci' of our estate. Read less

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Diamond Series Selection. 95 Points – Very Highly Recommended, Wine Spectator – “Enticing aromas of meat and mushroom pie mingle with rich plum and spices. Full-bodied, with silky, caressing tannins and intense fruit and mineral flavors. Well-crafted, finishing long. The flagship Brunello in 2003. This is the wine of the vintage.” It’s not a frequent occurrence that a winery can continually release 95+ rated vintages, but in the case of Valdicava, it is quickly becoming a wide known expectation. The concept at Valdicava is to first nurture a great respect for the tradition and flavors of Montalcino, while at the same time valuing their own individual character. With just 800 cases produced, the 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is a stunning Italian masterpiece with a rare, legendary reputation.

A testament to Sangiovese and the Valdicava winery. Their 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is a full-bodied wine that showcases the terroir of Tuscany quite nicely. Exhibiting notes of butter, plum and the characteristic Brunello spices, this wine is smooth but dense with a refined finish. An enjoy to drink.

Eine eindrückliche, reife – jedoch für den Jahrgang überraschend frische – Aromenpalette (Frucht, Tabak, Unterholz) von grosser Dichte und Klasse strömt aus dem Glas. Im Gaumen überzeugt der Brunello di Montalcino von Vincenzo Abbruzzese durch seine tiefgründige, nachhaltige, kompakte Struktur und seine gehaltvolle, elegante Textur. Der Abgang ist lange anhaltend, harmonisch und komplex – ein vielschichtiger, dichter Wein mit Eleganz und Harmonie, der zum Besten gehört, was diese Anbauregion hervorzubringen vermag!
