San Polo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 750ml
San Polo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 750ml
Price: $84.99

This wine truly reflects its pedigree given the meticulous treatment of grapes in the vineyard and wine in the cellar. Intense ruby red in color, this ’04 Brunello Riserva is full-bodied and warm on the palate, bursting with notes of red berries, violet petals, spices, and warm loam, followed by subtle notes of coffee, leather and peppery herbs. The finish is long, with round and refined tannins complementing the wine’s juicy texture; now with more than a decade of age, this Brunello Riserva is firing on all cylinders! Deriving from the vines grown in a south-southwest-facing plot rich in calcium and clay, the grapes for this wine ferment in temperature-controlled concrete tanks for about 22 days; the wine ages first for about 24 months in tonneaux, some new, followed by bottle aging, to be released six years after harvest. more info

Fuligni Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012 750ml
Price: $149.99

Fistfuls of lush red and blue fruits dance against a brooding backdrop of iris and violet petals, licorice, smoky minerals, grilled herbs, warm earth, and crushed river rocks in this stylish, powerfully elegant ’12 Brunello Riserva. Intense yet focused, this wine unspools with a silky, electric feel, seamlessly balancing its copious dry extract and polished tannins with a nicely acidic core. You’ll want to enjoy this dense but strikingly ethereal wine right away, but if you wait a couple of years, it’ll be even better. Fuligni makes its Brunello di Montalcino Riserva only in the very best years, and always from grapes grown on its oldest vines. Fuligni prizes intensely low yields and manual labor in the vineyards, and they redouble these efforts with their prized Riserva bottlings, which age in wood for five years before release. Fuligni crafted fewer than 1,000 cases of its Brunello Riserva in the ripe 2012 vintage. more info

Gaja Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello Sugarille 2007 750ml
Price: $159.00

A powerful, brooding embodiment of its benchmark vintage, this ’07 Brunello Sugarille bursts with succulent red and black fruits, smoky earth, licorice, exotic spices, and warm saddle leather. This wine balances its sheer power with its purity, rolling across the palate to a lingering, textured finish that’s studded with chewy tannins and redolent of smoky minerals. Enjoyable now with more than a decade of perfect maturity, this ripe vintage Brunello is drinking wonderfully, but its underlying structure and fine balance means it’ll drink for years, even decades, to come! This cru Brunello comes from the historic 12-acre Sugarille vineyard site that dates back to 1541 and the hands of Italy's most recognized and controversial winemaker, Angelo Gaja. Deriving from the southwestern-facing Sugarille site rich in white clay, the grapes for this cru wine ferment for a month in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for a year each in barriques and in botti. more info
Salvioni Cerbaiola Brunello di Montalcino 2013 750ml
Salvioni Cerbaiola Brunello di Montalcino 2013 750ml
Price: $159.00

At once graceful and deceptively muscular, Cerbaiola’s ’13 Brunello dances out of the glass in a profusion of red and blue fruits, pressed violet petals, crushed river rocks, underbrush, orange zest, and spicy, peppery herbs. This wine embraces its contrasts, managing to be intense and precise, delicate and tannic, tightly wound and enveloping. Building to a lingering finish accented by savory minerality, this wine is intensely satisfying. Relying on traditional viniculture, Cerbaiola gives its grapes an extended maceration of 28 to 30 days in stainless steel, which is also used for fermentation (although usually without temperature control), and then the wine ages in large Slovenian oak barrels for three years and in bottles for at least six months. While approachable now with some decanting, this wine is ideal for Brunello fans with cellar space. more info
