Il Palazzone

Former Citigroup and Time Warner CEO Dick Parsons is an American success story, and his Montalcino estate Il Palazzone, or "The Big Palace," is a dream come true. A small estate that has been producing wine for over ten years, Il Palazzone makes one of IWM’s staff favorite Brunellos, and its muscular, limited-release Super Tuscan, Lorenzo & Isabelle, offers a singular experience. Owner of a truly artisanal, traditional, elite estate, Parsons is no absent, dilettante owner; he’s present at harvest, at bottling, and at other key times in his wines’ development. This involvement helps ensure that he gives life Today, IWM is delighted to be the first US merchant to debut Il Palazzone 2006 Riserva Brunello and 2007 Normale Brunello, wines that we’ve already been fortunate enough to enjoy. All we can say is that you’ll want to taste them too. They’re gorgeous Brunellos, and they taste like the American Dream--as made in Toscana.
