Here’s your reward for scrolling. This Riserva is off the proverbial chain. The Wine Advocate called this “a dark and exuberant expression that delivers soothing warmth and bold intensity. The bouquet is redolent of black cherry, dried fruit, balsam herb and sweet tobacco. Those aromas build in power and coherency as the wine evolves and expands with oxygen. The finish is fresh but also very long and polished.” This is also featured in our Most Wanted Club in March!
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.
