For those of you who missed our last Brunello seminar and virtual wine dinner, we have a real treat in store for you.
This week, we’ll be featuring one of our favorite Brunello producers, a true classic from Montalcino.
Bruce Sanderson, senior editor and top Italian reviewer for Wine Spectator, gave this wine a whopping 96 points. And his score aligns with the consensus among leading Italian wine critics: This is a classic Brunello from what many to consider one of the best vintages of the decade.
For those who missed our last seminar on Brunello, this is an opportunity to learn about one of the pillars of the appellation. For who attended the last Brunello virtual seminar, this an opportunity to take home one of Montalcino’s best wines at a great price.
And for those who are wondering, that’s Montalcino’s famous “Fortezza” in the image above, photo taken by ROMA wine director Jeremy Parzen a few years ago on one of his many visits to the appellation over the years. It was once the southernmost outpost and fortress of the Siena government and army. Today, it’s a wine bar and favorite tourist spot for Brunello lovers.
