2015 Valdicava, Brunello di Montalcino

"A historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss." J. Suckling
Pre-Sale Arriving January-February 2020

A Fairy-Tale Vintage

If ever there were a Brunello vintage to jump into the proverbial deep end, this it. 2015 is a, "fairy-tale... one of the best vintages in the appellation." James Suckling

The 2015 Brunellos will start rolling in this January. They are reminiscent of 2010 and 1997. (So is 2016, but you won't see that release for well over a year.)

What do you buy in iconic vintages? You buy the best of the best. And, no better place to start than with Valdicava, one of the benchmark producers alongside heavy hitters Soldera and Biondi-Santi.

"Wonderful aromas of roses and sliced plums with wet earth and truffles. Then turns to raspberries and blackberries. Cherries, too. Full and firm with super integrated tannins that melt into the wine. It flows from the center palate in a beautiful sheet of fruit and tannins. Extremely long and coated with great finesse. Goes on for minutes.... The 2015 vintage is a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss. The wines show impressive precision of vivid fruit, fine tannins and freshness in acidity... which makes them some of the most exciting in years." James Suckling

Three Formats Available

We are offering this blue-chip Brunello in the following three sizes: 

If Valdicava isn't already sitting in your cellar, it should be. If you were fortunate enough to secure any of the prized 2010 vintage, here is your chance to add to your historic collection - or start one.

Enjoy it now... and over the next decade.
