Type Red Vintage 2012 Producer Cerbaia Appellation Tuscany Country Italy Drink by 2023 Pour at 65° Dry 0
One of the most impressive and elegant Brunello that we’ve come across, the Casanuova della Cerbaie Brunello di Montalcino is made from 100% Sangiovese – locally called Brunello – that is sourced largely from the famed Montosoli cru just north of the town of Montaclino. With vineyards between 300 and 350 meters above sea level, the moderate climate favors elegant, aromatic styles of Sangiovese with plenty of depth and structure for aging – all qualities that are easily found in the Casanuova della Cerbaie.
Type Red Vintage 2008 Producer Le Ginestre Appellation Piedmont Country Italy Drink by 2020 Pour at 65° Dry 0
Deep, bright ruby red with slight orange hues; expansive, clear-cut nose, with hints of violet, vanilla, cinnamon, sweet tobacco and licorice; very structured, soft mouth-filling taste with an appealing, long, spicy finish. Its structure gives this wine an exceptionally long cellar life, during which its tasting properties continue to develop.
