After the runaway success of Brunello di Montalcino 2010, the 2011 vintage had an incredibly difficult act to follow. Caught somewhere between the outstanding quality of the 2010 vintage and the soon to be hyped 2012s, the 2011s had the tough task of standing out.
Last week, the F+R team tasted through 60 samples of Brunello 2011 to find the best of the vintage. Though variable in quality, the top wines were stunning examples of charming, multi-dimensional Brunellos with a simmering sense of energy. It is clear that there is exceptional Brunello to be found in 2011, as long as you know where to look.
