External Reviews for Valdicava Sangiovese Grosso
Love the nose on this with blackberries, sweet tobacco, blueberries. Full body, with soft and silky tannins and a light jammy finish. Lots of dark fruits. Long finish. Loads going on in this one. Give it three to five years. Or more. James Suckling. A Sangiovese Grosso wine from Tuscany in Italy. 2006 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino 1500ml

Loads going on in this one. Give it three to five years.

This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages. A blast of iron, smoke, tar, licorice and new leather inform the deep, intense finish. This is a hugely promising, brilliant Brunello from proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese, but it needs to be buried in the cellar for at least a few years. Readers who can't wait should open the wine a few hours in advance, which will allow the fruit to emerge. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. My visit with Vincenzo Abbruzzese was instructive, as always. His may very well be the most consistently outstanding wines in vintages 2006-2010. I was especially struck by a lone tank of 2010 Brunello from Montosoli, a wine that will probably ultimately be blended into the straight Brunello, but that in my view has more than enough pedigree to merit its own bottling."
