Corte dei Venti Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 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.

Corte dei Venti only makes a Brunello Riserva only for the most important vintages. The 2016 has massive body and power with well-integrated tannins. Rich and ripe cherry, drying red roses, sweet spices, black truffle, tea leaf, tobacco, and a peristent finish with minerality. It's very concentrated, decisive and well-balanced. Most experts believe the 2016 is one of the greatest Brunello's in a generation. Time will tell. But I'll tell you what. This will knock your socks off. 

Only a few bottles are remaining and this is our best price offer.
