Occasional Wine Note: We love Brunellos, particularly the riservas, but this one may be our favorite of a big group of brilliant brands. This wine is posh with beautiful dark fruits and balanced tannin and acidity. You'll savor every sip, enjoying a long luscious finish. This one should absolutely lie down for a bit for opening, but if you must, please decant for maximum flavor.

    Delicate aromas recalling forest berry, rose, violet and wild herb shape the enticing nose. The savory, elegantly structured palate features juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry, star anise and a hint of tobacco set against taut, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it well balanced and focused. A wonderful expression of the fantastic vintage from one of Montalcino's most historic producers, it boasts great aging potential. Drink 2026–2046.

    The complexity and beauty of this wine is something else on the nose, offering perfume, cedar, dried flower, black cherry, blueberry and crushed stone. Orange peel, too. Full-bodied with incredible layers of ultra-fine tannins that give this wine horizontal depth that almost seems endless. Extremely long and lightly chewy at the end. This is one for the cellar. Try after 2026.
