95pts James Suckling

A young Brunello that shows plenty of ripe berry, cherry and floral character, as well as orange peel and sandalwood. It’s full-bodied, very layered and powerful with ripe, firm tannins that cover the wine. Powerful finish. Best ever from here. Needs plenty of time to come together. Try after 2024.

91pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Corte dei Venti 2016 Brunello di Montalcino sticks to classic lines. The bouquet delivers dried cherry and wild plum, and there are earthy notes followed by pressed violet and lavender. You might also recognize some drying mineral notes and distant touches of blood orange that add a moment of fleeting sweetness. The palate is lean, and the wine is more expressive in terms of bouquet than it is mouthfeel. However, the tannic backbone bodes well for medium-term cellaring.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby with garnet hints. Typical notes, on the nose, of ripe red fruits that combine with hints of sweet spices (vanilla and chocolate) with a delicate ethereal and balsamic background, with tones of tobacco and official herbs. The great intensity in the mouth, the fullness and roundness are excellently supported by freshness and structure; the tannins robust and soft at the same time give an elegance and persistence to this wine and assure it of a long life.

Winemaker Notes

Brunello di Montalcino D.O.C.G. is a wine with an exceptional intensity of flavour, the fullness and roundness in the mouth go with its freshness and structure. We refine it for 36 months in 20/25 hl Slavonian oak barrels and at least 8 months in the bottle.

Blend: 100% Sangiovese
