About Brunello Di Montalcino Riserva 2011 Renieri

The Renieri estate is located in the southern part of Montalcino on high altitude slopes. Owner/Winemaker Marco Bacci puts intense focus on his vineyards to produce the best possible fruit. His 70 acres of vines face southeast to southwest at around 1,200 above sea level. These high altitude vines are planted in uniquely diverse, iron-rich soil that's rare for this region. High density plantings are utilized to create extremely low yields. The low-yield fruit is deeply flavored, and in an overlooked vintage like this 2011 bring solid character at tremendous value.

The Wine Advocate scored this 92 points saying "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a plump, dark and rich expression with a slightly evolved appearance. This wine is very interesting because it highlights the many differences between the 2012 vintage that is released at the same time of this 2011 Riserva. Both vintages were hot. General speaking, 2012 tends to show more intensity on the nose and less in the mouth. The 2011 Riserva, however, offers a lot more dimension in terms of palate. There is some bitter Sangiovese astringency as well and sour notes on the finish that should soften with more time in the bottle. That said, this wine shows more potential for long aging."

and the Wine Spectator scored it 93 saying "Fresh and pure, boasting cherry, strawberry, floral and leather aromas and flavors. There is a sense of elegance and firm, well-integrated tannins. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2028."
