Press and Tasting Notes

EXTREMELY LIMITED - SHIPPING NOW

[100 pts James Suckling] " A wine with superb finesse and depth. So subtle and understated yet powerful and long. The tannin intensity is amazing. It just builds like a massive wave. Superb. Give this time in the bottle. The length is endless."

THE REVIEW

If you could rate a wine higher than 100 points, this would be the wine! In every country in every vintage there is one wine that stands out among all the others.
     In 2010 in Tuscany, that wine is Valdicava's Riserva Brunello, "Madonna del Piano."
    Shipping now, this is an extremely limited offering of the finest Brunello we've tasted from this historic vintage!
    Valdicava makes the Riserva "Madonna del Piano" in only the very best vintages. If you have been following our features, then you already know how special 2010 was - a once in a generation vintage.
    "Powerful and dramatic, but also remarkably polished for such a big wine, the 2010 has a lot going on. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, spices, new leather, smoke and tobacco are laced into the powerful intense finish. The 2010 is an especially finessed Madonna del Piano..." Antonio Galloni

    So enamored of this wine, we are offering two sizes:

      2010 Valdicava Riserva, Madonna del Piano, Brunello 750ml
      2010 Valdicava Riserva, Madonna del Piano, Brunello 1.5L (Magnum)

    The last time we saw a vintage like 2010 was the historic 1997 Tuscan vintage. Those wines are long gone but still talked about today. We will be doing the same with the 2010 vintage as it is arguably better.
    With the holidays right around the corner, this icon from Tuscany will make an unparalleled gift for friends, colleagues or a trophy for your very own collection!Read More »
