Winemaker Notes

The 2008 vintage is brilliantly ruby red in color with garnet highlights. It expresses a complex and intense nose with spicy and balsamic notes which fully fuse with aromas of raspberries, cherries, and ripe plums with light suggestions of tobacco and leather. On the palate, the wine is ample and enveloping with a silky texture across the palate and an intense progression of flavors, which bring out all the elegant and varietal personality of the wine. It is a true and outstanding expression of Sangiovese character.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
The Antinori family's Brunello estate has seen ups and downs in terms of wine consistency over the past five years. But 2008 delivers an honest and nicely concentrated expression that seems to benefit beautifully from the slightly warmer temperatures in its lower altitude vineyards. Dark chocolate, cherry fruit and barbecue spice appear on the finish.
JS 92
James Suckling
A wine with chocolate and hazelnut character on the nose and palate. Full body with chewy tannins and a slightly extracted finish. Outstanding fruit underneath it all. Still needs to come together.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Floral and raspberry aromas and flavors pick up tobacco, soy and briar components in this intense, wiry red. Lean, yet remains persistent and well-balanced, leaving a trail of spice and mineral accents. Best from 2016 through 2032.

The Antinori family of Florence, one of the world's oldest and most distinguished wine producers, has lived in Tuscany since the 14th century and celebrated its 625th anniversary as wine makers in 2010. The current company president, Marchese Piero Antinori, believes in the tradition that the primary role of wine is to accompany food and enhance the dining experience. In Florence, the Antinori family has led a "Renaissance" in Italian wine making by combining long traditions, a love of authenticity and a dynamic innovative spirit.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
