Piccini Villa al Cortile Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2010

A Brunello that’s elegant and true

 We enjoyed this beautiful wine last night with sliced baguette and aged cheeses, including parmigiano (a great match).

Brunello must spend at least 2 years in barrels and cannot be released until the fifth year after harvest. A patient investment to produce an outstanding wine.

We immediately noticed its deep dark red. Complex notes of ripe black cherry and spice contribute to an overall classy and delicate wine. It is smooth as silk and yet has more body than many Brunello’s.

It elegantly makes its presence known.

A past star in Vintages, it has now moved into General List (LCBO # 434696). About $35. 10 Bonus Air Miles in April 2016. Great time to buy. Highly recommended.
