“Hot Off The Press • 97 pts • The Envy Of Montalcino!”

The Envy Of Montalcino!

By David Gettenberg

Need the perfect pairing for sliced tomato with fresh mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and sea salt?  Lisini!

Lisini is one of the oldest Brunello producers.  At 400 meters, the altitude and southeastern vineyard exposure make it the envy of Montalcino. 

The 2016 Lisini Brunello was just awarded Decanter's most prestigious "World Wine Award."  It is also a "Cellar Selection," Wine Enthusiast's exclusive designation.

"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino excites the senses with a wonderfully pure and fruity display of wild strawberries, woodland herbs, wet stone and flowery undergrowth. Both savory and sweet, the textures are like silk, with waves of ripe red fruits and spices which give way to salty minerals, licorice, hints of black tea and a coating of fine tannin... creating harmonious balance and symmetry that makes the 2016 Lisini so easy to like already. That said, the best is yet to come."  Vinous

Lisini overdelivers with every vintage.  We love the tactile tannins from this gorgeous vintage.  We also love the dried herb notes that support the wine. 

This is our fifth Brunello feature from the stunning 2016 Tuscan vintage and one to add to your collection!

Enjoy now and over the next 15 years.

“Plush and juicy”

Decanter • 97 / 100

Decanter's International "World Wine Awards"

"Powerful, creamy, succulent with oak in proportion to the ripe red fruits. Palate is plush and juicy with plenty of tannin."

“Plush and juicy”

Wine Enthusiast • 96 / 100

Cellar Selection

"Inviting aromas of ripe wild berry, baking spice and Mediterranean herb are front and center along with a whiff of blue flower. Full bodied and vibrant, the savory palate features ripe Marasca cherry, star anise and nutmeg framed in noble tannins. Bright acidity provides freshness and balance. Give this time to fully develop and you'll be rewarded."

“Wonderfully pure and fruity display of wild strawberries, woodland herbs." ”

Vinous • 95 / 100

"The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino excites the senses with a wonderfully pure and fruity display of wild strawberries, woodland herbs, wet stone and flowery undergrowth. Both savory and sweet, the textures are like silk, with waves of ripe red fruits and spices which give way to salty minerals, licorice, hints of black tea and a coating of fine tannin. While youthfully structured, there’s a juicy freshness to be found throughout, creating harmonious balance and symmetry that makes the 2016 Lisini so easy to like already. That said, the best is yet to come."
