Blockbuster Brunello • The Envy Of Montalcino!

June 26, 2023

Each year, Lisini is on the top of our go-to Brunello list. 

Lisini is one of the oldest Brunello producers.  At 400 meters, the altitude and southeastern vineyard exposure of the estate make it the envy of Montalcino. 

A former winner of Decanter's "World Wine Award" as well as Wine Enthusiast's exclusive "Cellar Selection", Lisini is one of Montalcino's best expressions of Sangiovese. 

"Rich and deep, with base notes of plum and loamy earth offsetting cherry, hibiscus and eucalyptus flavors. Dense, with muscular tannins and lively acidity lending support. The long aftertaste evokes earth and Mediterranean brush."  Wine Spectator

Lisini offers a superb Brunello experience, especially in 2019, an off-the-charts vintage where depth and dimension take center stage.

We love the tactile tannins of this gorgeous wine.  We also love the dried herb notes that emerge from the glass.

Do you need the perfect pairing for sliced tomato with fresh mozzarella drizzled with olive oil and sea salt?  

Lisini!

Enjoy now and over the next 15 years.

Our Fifth Brunello Feature This Year Is The Envy Of Montalcino!

“What a gorgeous wine.”

Kerin O'Keefe • 98 / 100

"The Lisini 2019 Brunello is compelling, starting with its captivating aromas of fragrant blue flower, hay, perfumed berry, dark exotic spice, new leather and aromatic herb. It’s also delicious, delivering a great depth of flavors including juicy Morello cherry, raspberry croissant, licorice and crushed mint before a blood orange close. A backbone of velvety tannins provides seamless support while fresh acidity keeps it vibrant and balanced. What a gorgeous wine and the best Brunello I’ve had so far from this historic estate."

“Hot Wine, Wine Spectator Insider”

Wine Spectator • 97 / 100

"Leafy underbrush, earth and dusty mineral notes frame the core of cherry and raspberry flavors in this succulent red, which is supple, with a layer of chewy, chalky tannins coating the finish. Balanced overall, with a long, cherry-infused aftertaste."

“Sumptuously textured.”

Decanter • 96 / 100

"Below the town of Sant'Angelo in Colle, Lisini sprawls over 120 hectares, 24 of which are planted to vines. The 2019 embodies this warm, munificent, exotically scented southern stretch of Montalcino. Ripe arbutus berry and red rose meld marvellously with chestnut, iron and sunbaked earth. Sumptuously textured, it is generous in body and flavour, exuding fleshy persimmon and ripe strawberry. The palate drips with luscious acidity and a mineral drive lifts the core. Sandy tannins are relatively supple without sacrificing their commanding hold, and it finishes with crushed allspice..."
