Brunello Di Montalcino Col di Lamo, Tuscany, Italy, 2017
Grape: 100% Sangiovese Grosso sourced from 8ha of organic vineyards around Montalcino, wild yeast fermentation, aged for 2 years in oak. This wine has the potential to age for many decades gaining considerably in complex herbal notes, leather and tobacco.
The property, Col di Lamo, now owned by Giovanna Neri, is located at the northeast corner of the appellation, in an area that has performed nicely in some of the warmer vintages of the past years, thanks to the cooler microclimate found here. Farming is organic (not certified).
Colour: red colour of medium intensity, with purple reflections.
Perfume: harmonious, with a sophisticated note of prune and blackberry and a strong wood aroma.
Flavour: the taste results in a rich and balanced wine, distinguished by its aftertaste with a note of mixed berries and a delicate nuance of wood.
"The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino is open-knit and oxidative in personality with ripe plum, spice and sweet tobacco. This is an accessible expression of Sangiovese, having already seen five years of aging since the harvest. It is smooth and easy on the palate, and the tannins only add structure but no bitterness."
89/100 points, Monica Larner, WINE ADVOCATE
"Classic and decisive, it shows notes of raspberries, currants, cherries, lemon peel and sandalwood. Medium-full body, soft tannins and a precise and essential finish that is truly enjoyable right away. Better from 2022."
Pair with roasted wild boar, venison with blueberry preserve, turkey stuffed with prunes and truffles, rich & creamy lamb risotto, mature Parmigiano Reggiano, or even with blueberry/blackberry based pastries.
