The proof is in the pudding! Every vintage since 1997 has been rated 90 to 95 pts by numerous critics! Clout and ratings aside, this is a perfect example of Brunello and one of our most popular Italian wines on Vivino. Buy a bottle and find out for yourself what everyone is raving about!
Not sure why you should be excited about Brunello? We will tell you! As one of Italy's finest exports, Brunello offers complexity and longevity. Sangiovese's natural acidity allows for long term cellaring.

"The nose is full of dried herbs and dried cherries. Very smooth after a short decant. Tannins are present, but integrated. This will develop well in the next 5 years. Very good. " - Kyle P.
"Fantastic brunello right after opening and even better every other minute. Nose is intensive old fashion. Earthy with tobacco and leather. Long developing taste after black fruit. Exactly my kind of wine." - Jan H.

Rather sweet due to the super ripe vintage. But there's also great subtlety, enormous depth and a ton of tannin behind the opulence. The super long finish is incredibly focused. Try to wait until at least 2020. This stunning Brunello has decades of life ahead of it..

Only produced in the best vintages, Vigna Paganelli is a 12ha single vineyard planted in 1964. It represents the estate's oldest vines, which serve as a source for clonal material for new plantings. The nose seduces with exotic spice, rosemary, pepper and tobacco. Though all the elements are deftly balanced, the palate is still somewhat austere, locked in a firm, tannic grip. Lingering leather and dark cherry notes promise more to come, and this demands ageing.
