Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “How do you challenge what was accomplished in the ripe vintage of 2015? How about the classic 2016. It is a new chapter at this fabled Montalcino address, and it is one to watch. Diego Molinari is no longer seeing the operations, but the privileged vineyard site and historic estate is in good hands. And in 2016, the wine captures the structure of the more classic vintage. In fact, the wine begins big and explosive, but with marked acidity. With aeration, and time, the wine settles and integrates showcasing an almost creamy texture of rich fruit but balanced by some underlying precision. You can expect to find nuances of red and black fruit here highlighted by dark cherries, wild berries, plums, herbs, baked earth, and minerality. I know everyone is focused on the 2016 Brunello, but this get us excited about Rosso again, just as the Salvioni Rosso did in 2018. This is a true, grand cru-like Baby Brunello from the cult producer Cerbaiona and their prized vineyards from the benchmark vintage in the making. We receive a mere 54 bottles.”
