"If I had to think of one way to universally describe the majority of wines from the 2016 vintage, I would offer that they are like a well-muscled black stallion in its prime. These are wines that capture your imagination... you simply can’t help but revisit a glass over and over again. I frankly cannot remember the last time I tasted young wines from Montalcino that possessed such symmetry from start to finish... Do the 2016s live up to our expectations? Oh, yes; they certainly do." Vinous
We've said it before and we will say it again:
Whether you are adding to your collection or starting one, if Valdicava isn't in your cellar, it should be!
Attractive aromas of balsamic, tea, dark berry, walnut and coffee bean. Full-bodied, yet tight and very intense with ripe tannins that are fine and reserved. Racy and polished. Beautiful length to this wine. Needs at least two to three years to come." James Suckling
Over the upcoming weeks, we will be hand-selecting the finest Brunellos from the blockbuster 2016 vintage. Today's feature, the 2016 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino, is where you want to start!
There is a waiting list for this inbound beauty; be sure to reserve yours.
"If you ever wanted a Brunello di Montalcino for your cellar to age for decades, then buy the 2016 vintage when the wines come out in the market." James Suckling
Decant for an hour if you are inclined to enjoy it young; cellar for up to 25 years.
The 2016's are being compared to the iconic 1997 vintage still talked about today; blue-chips from that historic vintage are still showing beautifully.
