Brunello di Montalcino 2016

A vintage of purity and terroir transparency

2016 is a touchstone vintage for Brunello di Montalcino. It is a vintage of purity, so free from affectation that it will no doubt be the benchmark against which all other vintages are compared, past and future.  

Having tasted our first 2016s from tank back in the summer of 2019, these upcoming releases have been a long time coming. Now in bottle, they are exceeding our already high expectations. These are some of the most precise, elegant and detailed Brunellos we have ever had the pleasure of tasting. 

As each and every 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is released it will be updated here on our website. If you are interested in securing particular wines from the vintage, please contact your Account Manager or register interest here.
