Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino 2016
Valdicava’s 2016 Brunello is profoundly perfumed, wonderfully textured, deeply complex wine that takes its time in showing its many fascinating layers. Sweet red cherries, berries, and plums weave with savory underbrush, coffee beans, violet petals, baking spices, leather, and mint in this mesmerizing wine. Velvety tannins caress the palate; electric acidity adds energy; and sneaky minerals provide a tantalizing backdrop to the wine’s sweet fruits. If you can keep your hands off this for a couple of years, you’ll be rewarded — decant thoroughly if you can’t!
