Lisini is Brunello royalty. One of the original five Brunello producers, Lisini's southern Montalcino estate produced our favorite Brunello last year and we're probably headed for a repeat. The 2013 arrives in a couple weeks and has already received huge press: 96 points from Wine Spectator. We expect it to sell out long before it arrives (today, likely). Lock yours in now.
For the evenings when royalty is a little too...royal, we enthusiastically endorse Lisini's Rosso di Montalcino 2015, which is as good as many a Brunello on the market. Lisini Brunello di Montalcino 2013
$49.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case* order
96 points Wine Spectator, Highly Recommended:"Exuding cherry, strawberry and floral flavors tinged with iron, earth and spice notes, this ripe red is elegant in profile, tightly wound and deftly balanced, ending with a kick of fruit, spice and mineral elements. Best from 2020 through 2037."

The nobility of Sangiovese is on full display here -- and the 2015 is a particularly brilliant showing. Purity of red fruit and pure velvety goodness, adding tobacco, mineral, and floral highlights to match the gobstopping cherry. Drinking beautifully today, with plenty of depth and structure to reward cellaring, should you be able to resist. We can't. - Marcus
