Big league 2015 Brunello today! We all need (that's need) more Brunello in our cellars, right? First the massively rated star Casanova di Neri Tenuta Nuova, with 99 points. Second, one of our favorite under-the-radar-ish Brunello producers, Piancornello. Collect 'em while the collecting's good. Cheers!
$116.95 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($129.95 regular)
99 points James Suckling:"The purity of fruit in this wine really strikes you with black cherries, combined with sage, lavender and rosemary. Extremely aromatic. Full-bodied, yet so tight and polished with incredible tannin structure that gives the wine an endless mouth feel of caressing tannins, acidity and fruit. There’s a fabulous saltiness and oyster-shell undertone to the fruit. Unique. Drinkable already, but this year there’s the structure to last decades."
Also 98+ points Wine Advocate, 97 points Decanter, 96 points Vinous. So, it's good.
$49.45 in any 12 bottle or Build a Case order ($54.95 regular)
95 points James Suckling:"Intense ruby red with a garnet hue. The nose opens to notes of red and black berries, spices and herbs. The palate is full-bodied and fruity, with a consistent, dense and perfectly balanced tannin, followed by balsamic notes and a long, harmonious and gradual finish."
Also 93+ points Vinous and we're betting as soon as we taste it we're going to love it.
