96-point Brunello On the Way!
Italian fans, hold on to your pasta...because the 2012 Brunellos are coming to town and they're epic!
Altesino's 2012, their 40th harvest, arrives in early May. Given its 96 point rating, production size, and price, I virtually guarantee it to be in Wine Spectator's Top 100 and I'll make an even bolder prediction: it'll be in the top 10 and has a very good chance for #1.
Altesino Brunello di Montalcino 2012
$47.65 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($52.95 regular)
96 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended: "Cherry, leather and iron notes mark this suave, elegant red. A bit reticent now, but the fruit is fresh and long on the finish. The dense tannins leave a mouthcoating impression, but this opens up beautifully over a few hours. Best from 2021 through 2035."
Ships the second week of May. Limited, so please speak now if you want some.
And we have a new Tuesday night Rosso that far outperforms for its price. It is fantastic!
Piancornello Rosso di Montalcino 2015
$19.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order ($21.95 regular)
We've found a new "house wine." This is a study in the purity and attractiveness of Sangiovese. Gorgeous cherry fruit and Montalcino character abound. Such solid juice. It may not have the points, but it has our huge stamp of approval.
