A spectacular estate (neighboring Caprili and Soldera) and recently renovated by wine entrepreneur Alejandro Bulgheroni, Podere Brizio is starting to get far more attention, and it certainly deserves yours! 

Wine Spectator raved that it “Features a beam of pure cherry, augmented by floral, underbrush, tar and tobacco notes. Elegant, yet dense on the finish, exerting tannic grip for now. Excellent length.”

A great winemaker, well-capitalized owners, and prime terroir: that's the recipe for great Sangiovese at Podere Brizio. Superstar oenologist Alberto Antonini is in charge of winemaking at this impressive state in the township of Tavernelle, in the west-central part of the appellation. This is just to the north of Soldera's Case Basse (arguably the greatest producer of Brunello). The Brizio wines are Brunello wines that showcase the grace and power of Sangiovese beautifully. If you need any excuse to grill a big, thick Porterhouse and dress it with sea salt and emerald-green Dievole olive oil, here's your chance.
