The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a gorgeous, striking wine. Sweet macerated cherries, tobacco, licorice, spice and mint are all laced together in a super-expressive, resonant Brunello endowed with real class. Open-knit and seductive, the 2011 will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is an especially delicate, sensual Brunello that speaks to the finesse that is possible on the northern side of Montalcino, and a terrific example of the year at its very best. With time in the glass, the 2011 starts to shut down, which may be a very good sign of its potential longevity. In any event, the 2011 Brunello is a winner. Proprietor Francesco Ripaccioli gave the 2011 a bit less time in oak than is customary. Production was just 28,000 bottles as opposed to the 50,000 bottles that were produced between the straight Brunello and Riserva in 2010 (there is no Riserva in 2011.)

A silky, refined red with plum, berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Full body. Lots of ripe fruit but not overdone. Chewy with polished tannins and a refined finish. Really excellent for the vintage. Needs a year or two to soften: better in 2017. Oct 2015, JamesSuckling.com

Lovely blend of sweet and savoury spice with ripe dark fruits and kirsch. Glossy texture, open and polished. Drinking nicely already. March 2016
