RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Firma is my favorite wine among this group. The cooler, more acidic and austere 2008 vintage is better-suited for the heavy soils of Torrenieri, resulting in a greater sense of balance. Thick lines of ripe fruit, spice and leather set the contours of the wine and more delicate tones of licorice, cola and balsam herb appear as lighter shadings. There’s a touch of jammy sweetness and the tannin is definitely more apparent and delineated in this wine. Drink: 2016-2022.

Vitanza Winery Image

Tenuta Vitanza is located in Montalcino, in Tuscany, and opened in 1995. The owners are Dr. Rosalba Vitanza and her husband Ing. Guido Andretta.

The estate is spread out on four different land parcels but is conducted in an unitary manner by the family because all the different parcels are within the Montalcino boundaries. In particular the headquarters are located at Podere Belvedere outside of the village of Torrenieri one of the four Montalcino territory villages, where the new cellar and a small vineyard is located. We have than the vineyard based in Torrenieri also, Località Casella and the Castelnuovo dell’Abate vineyards in Località S.Polino

Montalcino Wine

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.
