Winemaker Notes

Concentrated and dense, with notes of dark plums, dried raspberry, tobacco and leather. The wine offers a bright garnet color with power and fine tannins on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

This is a very complex wine on the nose with ripe berry and cherry aromas, as well as underlying iodine. Full body, chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Very rich and intense. Yet, it remains fresh. A more opulent style. Drink or hold.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Dark-skinned berry, pressed violet, pipe tobacco and chopped herb aromas take center stage. The smooth juicy palate is already approachable, offering fleshy morello cherry, fig, licorice and a hint of black tea. Velvety tannins lend it a supple texture. Drink through 2021.

Villa Al Cortile  Winery Image

Villa al Cortile is the Piccini Family estate in Montalcino. It is situated in the south side of the Brunello di Montalcino production area with 12 ha of vineyards distributed between the northern area of Montosoli and southern area of Lavacchio. The location of both their Lavacchio and Montosoli vineyards provides their wines essential features.

Villa al Cortile creates wines that speak to the balance between a grape varietal, Sangiovese, and its terroir, Montalcino. It is the specific characteristics of the two vineyards that give the wines their uniqueness. Villa al Cortile Brunellos are crafted with patience and dedication. Nothing is rushed; Montalcino has everything to do with the slow flow of time.

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.
