Winemaker Notes

Beautiful nose of blueberries and blackberries. Sweet spices on the palate. Supple and well-balanced.

Pair with roasted meats and game.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
Features a beam of pure cherry aromas and flavors, augmented by floral, underbrush, tar and tobacco notes. Elegant, yet dense on the finish, exerting tannic grip for now. Excellent length. Best from 2020 through 2032.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Podere Brizio is now under new ownership. Renewed winemaking efforts are very much on display in the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino. This is a clean and elegant expression of Sangiovese that never feels old or tired. In fact, the wine reveals an integrated but consistent level of energy that drives its personality. The mouthfeel is streamlined and compact with a long, silky texture. This wine offers more in terms of length than it does power.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Underbrush, oak, wild berry, herb and balsamic notes lead the nose of this Brunello. Tightly wound, fine-grained tannins frame cranberry, red cherry, orange zest and white pepper flavors on the palate. A hint of star anise signals the close. Drink 2020–2027.

The production area is the entire territory of Montalcino’s county, at 40 km south from Siena. It’s delimited by the Valle dell’Orcia, dell’Asso and dell’Ombrone and it’s spread over approximately 16 km with a surface of 2400 hectares.

Montalcino took shape during different geological eras, as a consequence, its soil results made of different compositions. In order to cultivate grapevines, only the hilly vineyards, well displayed and at an altitude under 600 meters above the sea’s level are regarded as suitable winegrowing areas. Our vineries are displayed at an altitude of 200 meters a.s.l. to 320 meters a.s.l.

Tuscany, Italy

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.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
