Dark red cherries plums spices leather and tobacco wrap around the palate as this dense powerful wine starts to open up. Expressive aromatics are woven throughout giving the 2007 a measure of polish and sophistication that is not always present in this wine when it is young. Finessed suave tannins reinforce an impression of elegance. The 2007 can be enjoyed with minimum cellaring but it will also age gracefully for many years. Readers who want to try the 2007 today should give the wine plenty of air as the more refined qualities only emerge over time. When tasted next to the 2006 the 2007 shows redder tonalities of fruit and less sheer muscle. Hints of tobacco crushed flowers and spices wrap around the sensual finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.

Label

Valdicava's philosophy is to work more in the vineyards to express balance and terroir. They like to produce a Brunello that represents the best tradition in structure and aromatics with more elegance, harmony, and fruit. Grapes from their Poggio, Pievecchina, Pratea and Sferracavallo vineyards provide for their primary wine, Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino.

Winery

Valdicava

One of the oldest estates producing Brunello di Montalcino, Valdicava is located in the Montosoli area, famous in Montalcino for wines with great balance of body and aroma. Vincenzo Abbruzzese, owner and winemaker, has been making wine at Valdicava for more than 30 years. He and his family have long-crafted Sangiovese masterpieces, and their Brunellos are considered a benchmark - among the finest in the region. Vincenzo is known to be one of the masters of Brunello due to his passion and intense dedication to the vineyard, and clinical attention to detail at each step of the wine-making process.

Nearly 67 of the 333 acres of the property are dedicated to vines, all strictly Sangiovese. Martini Bramante, Vincenzo Abbruzzese’s grandfather, bought the property in 1953 and began bottling “Brunello Valdicava” in 1968. Today, with the help of Valdicava’s agronomist, Andrea Paoletti, and oenologist Attillio Paglio, Vincenzo has succeeded in bringing his wines to the next level and in establishing a stellar reputation.
