2015 Podere Brizio Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

$120.00

Here’s your reward for scrolling. This Riserva is off the proverbial chain. The Spectator called this “Plenty of ripe black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors permeate the opulent texture in this red. Woodsy, wild herbs, mineral and black pepper notes add complexity, riding the long finish with fruit and savory elements.”

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.
