Rivaling The Legendary 2016 And 1997 Vintages, You Want 2019 Brunello In Your Cellar! Over the coming weeks, we will be hand-selecting and featuring the finest Brunellos from the blockbuster 2019 vintage. What do you drink in the best vintages? The best producers! The 2019 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino is where you want to start if you didn't grab any of our featured 2019 Casanova di Neri Brunello. We've said it before, and we will say it again: Whether you are adding to your collection or starting one, if Valdicava isn't in your cellar, it should be! The 2019 Brunello di Montalcino is darkly alluring with a youthfully coy bouquet that requires coaxing as dusty earth and dried flowers slowly take on hints of incense and black cherries. It flows easily across the palate, silky and refined with building tension as brisk acidity and minerals mingle with edgy tannins toward the close. The 2019 finishes dramatically long and structured with a pleasantly bitter tinge. A resonance of salted licorice and cedar lingers on and on. Valdicava has captured the radiance of the vintage." Antonio Galloni, Dramatically long on the finish with a crunchy core, the wines of 2019 are pure, racy, and cool with wonderful "al dente fruit." James Suckling We've had countless calls for the 2019 Valdicava Brunello for good reason. It is a wine worth having, especially in this historic vintage. Valdicava is a must have wine - one you do not want to miss! The wines are deep, nuanced, rustic, and expressive. "2019 [is] “a dream for any farmer: perfect weather, perfect rains, perfect temperatures, incredibly wonderful wines." Pier Filippo Abbruzzese, Valdicava Even More Rare, The "Immortal" Montosoli In only its third release in a magnum and first release in 750ml, Montosoli Brunello is the Grand Cru of Montalcino. Valdicava's 100 point Montosoli Brunello can be ordered here in 750ml and here in 1.5L magnums. It is made in only exceptional vintages. Eric Guido of Vinous called this wine "Possibly immortal" and an "epic wine in the making." The 2019's are being compared to the iconic 2010 and 1997 vintages, which are still talked about today; blue-chips from that historic vintage are still showing beautifully. Quantities are limited. Enjoy!
