Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2006, Villa Al Cortile, Piccini
Villa al Cortile Estate is situated in an area of gently rolling hills surrounding the town of Montalcino.
With SE exposure the vineyards benefit from prevailing sea breezes wafting in from the Maremma. The constant air movement from the coast reduces moisture levels in the vineyards, while adding freshness and enhancing the aromatics. Harvest is done exclusively by hand at full grape maturity. This Riserva is aged 36 months in French oak barrels and 6 months in the bottle. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 93 points saying "Black cherry and coffee notes come to the fore and are followed by softer layers of spice, clove and cardamom. Pressed roses too. Firm and linear in the mouth with a tight tannic bite on the close. Drink after 2018." Grab it while it's On SALE!
