Winemaker Notes

Profound and intense ruby color. A great and complex nose. Flavors of red fruits and spices (graphite, vanilla, tobacco). In the mouth, the entrance is powerful but balanced by silky tannins. The final, very pleasing and balance, is very long and remains in the memory of the taster for many minutes.

James Suckling
Very perfumed with chocolate, berries and spices. Some nuts, too. Full body, velvety tannins and a luscious finish. Extremely long and generous yet shows reserve. Drink in 2019.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Renieri is an excellent producer of Brunello. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers a gorgeous appearance with a dark burgundy color and thick saturation. The bouquet is rich and complete with layer after layer of ripe fruit intensity. The effect is succulent and rich. This Brunello drinks beautifully right now and shows a contemporary style with thick extraction and soft tannins. The mouthfeel also delivers good density and fullness, and that does not come easy in this vintage.

Wine Spectator
There is an edge to this red, with a solid structure reflecting the cherry, chocolate, tar and earth flavors. Stays long and vibrant. Best from 2022 through 2036.

Renieri Renieri Vineyards Winery Image

Located in the prestigious Montalcino DOCG Appellation, Renieri is like a precious jewel in Marco Bacci’s treasure chest. Renieri lies southeast of Montalcino, on the southern border of the production zone facing Monte Amiata. The estate extends over 128 hectares of which 30 are dedicated to vineyards. Immediately following the purchase of the property in 1997, the old vineyards were completely replanted with six clones of Sangiovese grafted onto rootstock, following careful analysis of the terrain. Planted at an altitude of nearly 1,320 feet above sea level, the vineyards will surely benefit from the volcanic and calcareous soils. The property is in a splendid position, and the recently renovated main estate villa, made in stone during the 1700s, looks out over the vineyards and the valley where five massive, centuries-old oak trees stand as sentinels marking the center of the whole estate.

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.
