"This is a go-to bottle if you want a first and memorable taste of the classic 2016 vintage." Wine Advocate
It's high elevation and among the southernmost vineyards in Montalcino, it is no wonder Renieri produces some of the most captivating and exotic Brunello in the region in any vintage.
The 2016 is exceptional!
The winery's altitude contributes to the charm and depth of this masterful Montalcino.
Elegant and bohemian, it displays floral traits of hibiscus, walnut husk, chinotto, juniper berries, and burnt mandarin peel. In the background, small hints of sandalwood enhance the grace of the matrix. Full body, juicy, and perfectly velvety tannins extract in the matrix and a finish that shows a graceful and luminous balsamic closure." International Wine Review
I've enjoyed this wine several times over the past year and it is a striking Tuscan red.
Ready to enjoy now, the 2016 Renieri Brunello is a fantastic pairing with truffle ravioli and shaved Parmesan. It also pairs perfectly with a pear and arugula salad, followed by grilled steak and oven-roasted new potatoes!
Enjoy now and over the next decade.
"The Renieri 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a plush, fruit-forward, and accessible wine that captures the purity and elegance of the vintage. The best take-away, however, is the fresh, ready, and bright state of this wine that makes it almost ready to enjoy straight out of the gate. This Brunello from a nine-hectare plot with limestone clay soils offers bold cherry and blackberry with delicate spice, smoke, and blue flower. The wine is marked by balanced acidity, and there is some tannic tightness that should further relax by the time this wine hits the market at the start of 2021. This is a go-to bottle (in a 50,000 bottle release) if you want a first and memorable taste of the classic 2016 vintage."
"The 2021 Magari is the most elegant Magari I can remember tasting. Vibrant, nuanced and medium in body, the 2021 possesses notable energy from start to finish. All the elements are so nicely balanced. Dark cherry, mocha, dried herbs, licorice and menthol are finely sculpted in this super-expressive Bolgheri red. Terrific."
