Winemaker Notes

The ruby red color of a young Brunello attenuates during its evolution leaving hints of light garnet which change as the wine ages. The structure is rich in dry extracts which reach up to 32-33gr/l. Tannins are present but soft with a long finish. This Brunello is excellent with roasted red meats and skewers of wild game while the older vintages improve over time even as meditation wines.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I absolutely love what the Salvioni family has created in this vintage. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiole is an unexpected wine. This beautiful expression shares very little with its peers. The wine achieves the signature style and elegance that is so unique to Salvioni despite the warm vintage. The results are ethereal and deep with classic aromas of dark fruits and spice. But the bouquet is unusual in that it also offers very sophisticated layers of pressed flowers, cloves, dusty mineral and grilled rosemary. The tannins are enormously silky and polished. Hats off to Salvioni.

Lots of ripe fruit yet fresh and mineral with a sage and rosemary undertone. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Truly excellent. Drink or hold.

La Cerbaiola di Giulio Salvioni

La Cerbaiola di Giulio Salvioni, Italy
The Salvioni family has been growing Sangiovese grapes for generations, starting in the early 1900s. Thanks to the last descendent, Mr. Giulio Salvioni, this winery also vinifies and bottles Brunello di Montalcino. The first production dates back to 1985.

The vineyard, situated in the Commune of Montalcino at about 400 meters above sea level spans only 3 hectares. The soil is a mix of schist and clay marl. The plants are grown traditionally with the Cordone Speronato (Trellising) method and produce 42 quintals per hectares of grapes annually. Giulio Salvioni has managed to craft a true Brunello di Montalcino that is well integrated and balanced. Individualism and personal care have made this wine a bit of a cult player for the finest grained Brunello made.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
