Product Overview

I like the ripe fruit and smoked-meat aromas to this. Subtle and complex. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and long and chewy finish. Needs time to soften. Very structured for the vintage. Better in 2020. -James Suckling

Valdicava represents its own school within the greater Brunello philosophy. This estate (under proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese) crafts contemporary and modern wines with noticeable density and ever-present aromatic intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a dark and inky appearance with bright ruby highlights that break through the background darkness with brilliance. The nose is generous and robust with dark cherry fruit, plum, Indian spice, mocha and espresso bean. These elements are stitched together with seamless transitions. Despite that grand approach, Sangiovese's prickly and often nervous personality shines through nonetheless. The variety adds delicate berry nuances and bright acidity that give this wine profound depth. This is a very well-made wine that promises a long aging future. Drink Date: 2017 - 2030 - Monica Larner, February 28, 2017
