“The Cortonesi 2014 Brunello di Montalcino (with 14,000 bottles made) shows a sweeter side that I did not encounter in most of the other wines I tasted from this vintage. If other producers had difficulty getting to soft fruit ripeness, the folks at Cortonesi have achieved this with ease. Dark cherry and dried raspberry rise from the bouquet. There are faint hints of baking spice and clove. Although the wine can be admired for is lush primary fruit, this vintage offers moderate complexity. This wine aged in 30-hectoliter Slavonian oak casks for 36 months.
In 2014 Tommaso Cortonesi only made a Brunello di Montalcino annata. Fruit from his single vineyard selections La Mannella and Poggiarelli were directed to this wine instead.” 90 points Monica Larner robertparker.com
