Voluptuous Vecchie Vigne!
"The Vecchie Vigne selection [is] full-on Mediterranean in character; big and deep and powerful." Decanter
Vecchie Vigne means old vines, the "gravitas" of which "comes through loud and clear." Antonio Galloni
With 7+ years of bottle age, you can comfortably crack open this bodacious Brunello and enjoy its amazing fruit.
"The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne shows great balance that is due, in part, to the advanced age of the vines... The bouquet exhibits elements of forest fruit, crushed mineral, balsam herb and wild mushroom." Robert Parker
What do we love about this wine?
Full cherry, dark berry, red plum, walnut, pepper, dried leaf, herbs and mild oak are balanced by classic Old World structure and texture.
It is not often we get enough wine with bottle age to feature. Take advantage of this opportunity. And, there is another benefit to snatching up this luscious 2011 from "one of Montalcino's best producers" and "a vintage with a ton of sex appeal." Wine Spectator
In 2014, the upcoming Brunello vintage, most producers did not make a Brunello due to inclement weather. That vacuum sound you will hear in a few short months is the dearth of Brunello in the market.
Take advantage of this expressive wine that can be enjoyed now and still be aged for another 10 years.
