Winemaker Notes

A full bouquet, tobacco, violet, vanilla. Dry yet full and perfectly balanced, full bodied, rich, exceptional and sound character wine. It is a perfect example of a full noble wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is an impeccable, racy wine endowed with gorgeous, delineated fruit and expressive aromatics, all of which come together with considerable grace. Fragrant dark cherries, violets and menthol add further shades of complexity. The 2005 is a relatively soft, smaller-scaled version of this wine but it is nevertheless quite beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2023.

Wine Enthusiast
From the S. Angelo in Colle subzone of Montalcino, this seriously fruit-driven expression relies on a solid bouquet of cherry, blackberry and cassis. Oak-driven layers of spice and toast appear with more clarity in the mouth and the finish is capped by long, silky tannins. Drink after 2013.

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.

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.
