Winemaker Notes

Complex, compelling, beautifully plummy and polished, with blockbuster structure complemented by Bernabei's hallmark elegance; unfolding layer after layer of goudron, berry fruit, tobacco, violets, vanilla.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino shows what the house can do when the sun shines. The classic garnet color is followed by the equally recognizable aromas of plums, tar, and leather, and the powerful, lengthy, mineral-laced flavors indicate that this is a wine built to age.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

The '99 vintage in Montalcino produced a lot of great wines, this one sharing the roundness and luscious fruit character that makes the young wines so appealing. The sustained, deep black cherry flavor balances lighter tones of cranberry and red pepper spice, ready for seared sirloin tips or any rare red meat.

Lisini
Located a few miles south of Montalcino itself, at Sant'Angelo in Colle, the fourteenth-century towered villa is steeped in one of the appellation’s most beautiful and "wildest" landscapes, surrounded only by woodland and vineyards at an altitude of 1312 feet above sea level. Typically built in stone and terracotta tiles, the villa itself blends into this natural backdrop with a harmony that is all Tuscan. The Lisini estate, covering a total of 380 acres and comprising one of the finest, most historical crus in the Montalcino appellation, has been in the Lisini family since the early 1700s. Under the tutelage of Elina Lisini, this superb terroir has fulfilled its exceptional promise. Located in the hills a little south of Montalcino itself, overlooking the Orcia valley (an area conducive to full, potent Brunellos), it was one of the very first to produce and bottle this noble wine. The vineyards now cover almost 49 acres and include the high-rising, 3.7- acre cru of Ugolaia. Lisini's unique soil, together with state-of-the-art vinification, yield a model Montalcino range.

Pinot Noir

View all wine

One of the most difficult yet rewarding grapes to grow, Pinot Noir is commonly referred to by winemakers as the “heartbreak grape.” However, the greatest red wines of Burgundy prove that it is unquestionably worth the effort. More reflective than most varieties of the land on which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate, requires low yields to achieve high quality, and demands care in the vineyard and lots of attention in the winery. It is an important component of Champagne and the only variety permitted in red Burgundy. Pinot Noir enjoys immense popularity internationally, most notably in Oregon, California, and New Zealand.

In the Glass

Pinot Noir Is all about red fruit—strawberry, raspberry, and cherry. It is relatively pale in color with soft tannins and lively acidity. It ranges in body from very light to the heavier side of medium, typically landing somewhere in the middle—giving it extensive possibilities for food pairing. With age (of which the best examples can handle an astounding amount), it can develop hauntingly beautiful characteristics of fresh earth, autumn leaves, and truffles.

Perfect Pairings

Pinot’s healthy acidity cuts through the oiliness of pink-fleshed fish like salmon, ocean trout, and tuna. Its mild mannered tannins don’t fight with spicy food, and give it enough structure to pair with all sorts of poultry—chicken, quail, and especially duck. As the namesake wine of Boeuf Bourguignon, it can even match with heavier fare. Pinot Noir is also very vegetarian-friendly—most notably with any dish that features mushrooms.

Sommelier Secret

Pinot Noir is dangerously drinkable, highly addictive, and has a bad habit of emptying the wallet. Look for affordable but still delicious examples from Germany (as Spätburgunder), Italy (as Pinot Nero), Chile, New Zealand, and France’s Loire Valley and Alsace regions.
