San Lorenzo 2017 Brunello di Montalcino

$ 6999

Winemaker Notes

Sanlorenzo’s finest grapes are devoted to a very fine Brunello di Montalcino, the result is
a perfect combination of terroir, vineyard and winemaking. It is an incredibly elegant and
intense wine, able to express itself at its best over time. It is vinified in stainless steel vats
at controlled temperature and then aged in wooden barrels. After bottling the wine ages 4 months before it is released on the market. After five years this wine has a great variety in its bouquet and an unique combination of tastes that unveil with great effect. The colour is dark garnet red, the wine’s bouquet is generous with hints of dry flowers, spices and ripe fruit. The wine has a great structure, good tannins of perfect extraction and a long finish. This Brunello is best paired with game, Fiorentina and Tagliata steak and
aged pecorino cheese.

Critical Acclaim
91pts Wine Advocate
Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The San Lorenzo 2017 Brunello di Montalcino (made with certified-organic fruit) is dark and saturated, and although you get lots of bold and luscious fruit, the oak is also quite evident. It brings forth spice, smoky tar and cedar, so you might need to wait a few more years until that subsides and integrates. The tannins need softening. That said, the wine has the ample fruit to support its many elements and spices."

90pts Vinous Media
Eric Guido, Vinous: "The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with masses of crushed raspberry, dusty rose and autumnal spice. This is seamlessly smooth and creamy in feel, mixing potent red fruits with savory herbal tones over a core of saline-infused acidity. It leaves a lasting twang of salted licorice, hints of cranberry and only the slightest tug of grippy tannin. The 2017 will only require minimal cellaring to show its best." 12/21
90pts Wine Enthusiast Notes
Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast: "Camphor, blue flower, ripe plum and resin aromas waft out of the glass. On the tightly wound, linear palate, close-grained, enveloping tannins accompany dried cherry, star anise and a hint of tobacco. Drink 2024–2029." 04/22
