Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino 2001

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Opened and poured. Deep, dark cherries, forest floor and a subtle note of mint. Fruit is still powerful, offsetting the solid tannins. Cherry skins and dried blackberry. Good acid support. Fine earthy finish with a bit of brown sugar. Satisfying masculine personality. 24hrs later-Continues to display a wonderful masculinity. Black cherry/cherry skins and leather with brambles and spice. Love the solid finish that grips and holds in a pleasing way. Definitely improved and integrated since last night. Elegant and powerful at the same time.

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.

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
