Brunello di Montalcino 2018 expresses all the peculiarity of the challenging vintage. In the glass, the wine is deep ruby red in color. On the nose it is very intense and broad, showing off the typical notes of the denomination: small red berries, black cherries, with a hint of spices. The sip is complex and deep, with a very elegant and refreshing finish, thanks to the excellent acidity.

Starts out rich, with a touch of glycerol in the texture, before civilized tannins take over on the finish. Offers plum, cherry, earth, tobacco and iron notes that prevail, with a firm grip of tannins on the finish. Best from 2026 through 2043.

A dusty blend of cedary spice, mentholated herbs, rose petals and sour cherry wafts up from the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino. It's round and supple in feel, with floral-laced red and black fruits complemented by a subtle tinge of sweet spice. This leaves a bitter twang of sour berries, while a burst of residual acidity adds a cheek-puckering freshness, and a gentle tug of tannin slowly recedes. The 2018 has improved each time I've tasted it in the last five months, and it now shows the ruggedness of Northwestern Montalcino Sangiovese, but in a wonderfully balanced way.
