Tenute Silvio Nardi consists of 192 acres of vineyards at Casale del Bosco, in Montalcino. Since 1985 it has been run by his youngest daughter, Emilia.
Emilia Nardi knows she can depend on Casale's special and distinctive terroir to produce outstanding Brunello, which receives 90+ scores every vintage. The estate's vineyards are situated between 450 and 1,250 feet above sea level. Some estate vineyards extend to the south-east at Manachiara, where the precious cru of the same name originates. The wine undergoes extended maceration for at least 20 days. It is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels and then 12 months in large Slavonian oak before bottling. This outstanding 2010 received all 90+ scores including James Suckling who scored it 95 and said "Aromas of blackberry, stone, slate, oyster shell, and truffle that turns to full body, soft and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This goes on for minutes on the palate. A savory and gorgeous wine. Drink or hold."
