2018 Lisini Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #5062973
Winery Notes- Considered one of the greatest expressions of Italian enology, Brunello di Montalcino is produced exclusively with grapes from the vine of the same name, which represents a variety of Sangiovese Grosso. The Brunello di Montalcino of the Lisini Agricultural Company stands out for its truly superior characteristics obtained through continuous care of the vines, cultivated with traditional methods and excluding any forcing practice, careful selection and thinning of the bunches during growth and a careful selection of the grapes during the harvest. All this, combined with the most modern winemaking methods, ensures an exceptional level even with seasonal trends that are not entirely favourable.
DECANTER MAGAZINE REVIEW: Near Sant'Angelo in Colle, on the road that leads to Castelnuovo dell’Abate, Lisini is within the zone of Sesta. The estate preference is to pick quite late, and they are one of the last in the area to harvest. The relative ripeness and concentration is evident in 2018 but not at the expense of balance. In fact, Lisini’s Brunello is one of the vintage’s more exciting and profound wines. It opens slowly with hints of chestnut and smoke, then discloses dark cherry, iron and fragrant moist soil. Tannins are tightly stitched yet malleable, giving a satisfying mouthful. Finishes with a salty tang and mineral drive.
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine of medium-soft volume and intensity with dark fruit, ripe cherry, black plum, spice and sweet potting soil. That theme of sweetness continues to the plush, lightly textured palate. The wine is ready to drink in the near or medium term; the tannins are round and ready, and it concludes with bright acidity.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Rich and deep, with base notes of plum and loamy earth offsetting cherry, hibiscus and eucalyptus flavors. Dense, with muscular tannins and lively acidity lending support. The long aftertaste evokes earth and Mediterranean brush. Best from 2026 through 2045.
