Corte dei Venti Brunello di Montalcino is truly an off-the-beaten-path wine. The wine industry overuses this term. But, if you go to Montalcino, one of the most important wine zones in the world, you will never find the Corte dei Venti estate unless you know exactly where you are going. Tucked away on a long and curvy dirty road, the vineyards are in the heroic south of Montalcino with the red lands. Brunello di Montalcino, terroir-driven, exposes the flavors, scents, and tastes of this part of Tuscany.

The 2018 is elegant and refreshing with bright sour cherry, drying red roses, sweet spices, black truffle, tea leaf, mediterranean shrubbery and a mineral finish. It's very concentrated, decisive and well-balanced. The 2017 has achieved above the average results for what some say is a mediocre vintage in general. But those who say 2017 was a good year, but maybe not the best year, have not tasted Corte dei Venti Brunello!

2018 was the first cool summer in a long long time, which is why the 2018 is more elegant and classic than the 2015, 2016, and 2017. And while the wine elites express their snobbery for 2018, this will be the vintage everyone will want to drink in 20 years. It has a long runway of evolution to come. If I were you, I'd buy a few cases to drink now and hold for later. 

Hand-harvested grapes. The wine ages in Slovenian large oak casks for 3 years. 10,000 bottles handcrafted. Stop drinking mass-produced Brunello, and start tasting a small batch Brunello that reminds us why this wine is one of the world's finest.
