Bright and vivid with crushed raspberries and orange peel on the nose. Full body, tight and solid tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Pretty austerity. Better in 2019 when the tannins soften.

Wine Spectator, June 2017
Rose, strawberry, cherry and black pepper aromas and flavors are the highlights of this red. The unyielding structure provides support, surrounded by a lush texture. Fine length. Best from 2020 through 2033. 12,500 cases... Rose, strawberry, cherry and black pepper aromas and flavors are the highlights of this red.

Wine Enthusiast, April 2017
Red berry, toast and black spice aromas lead the nose, accented by whiffs of espresso. The palate offers licorice, clove, dried cherry and vanilla notes, while a backbone of fine-grained tannins provides support.

Bright ruby in color. An intriguing blend of aromas burst forth from the glass, revealing notes of ripe cherries and raspberries accented by notes of rose petals, violets, underbrush, herbs and leather. ... Bright ruby in color. An intriguing blend of aromas burst forth from the glass, revealing notes of ripe cherries and raspberries accented by notes of rose petals, violets, underbrush, herbs and leather. Medium-to-full-bodied with a suave texture, a core of ripe red berry fruit is supported by fine tannins and focused beam of acidity culminating in a long, satisfying finish. Exhibits admirable complexity despite its youth. While drinking well now, this should continue to evolve gracefully for 7-10+ years.

Label

Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino is a "Pure-Noble" Sangiovese wine. It is a wine for which blending translates to capturing different notes from different terroirs where softness arrives by gentle aging.

The wine has an intense ruby red color with garnet highlights. It has clean, sophisticated, intense and complex aromas, rich in evolved overtones, with hints of anise, ripe wild berries and a light touch of vanilla. Warm with supple tannins, this wine has great structure, good length and considerable aging capacity.

Winery

Nardi, Silvio

Tenute Silvio Nardi is a Tuscan wine estate founded in 1950 by Silvio Nardi with his purchase of Casale del Bosco’s estate in Montalcino. The vineyards, located in a primarily hilly area that ranges from 460 to 1,575 feet above sea level, comprise 36 plots that extend to the east and west of Montalcino and are grouped into three estates.

From Casale del Bosco comes the precious cru Brunello Poggio Doria, an elegant, aristocratic interpretation of Sangiovese. Casale del Bosco is located on the west side, offering elegant and complex wines. Manachiara, exposed to the east, offers full bodied and powerful wines.

Sangiovese is the estate’s tradition and has been planted on almost all of the estate’s lands although, in 8 of the 80 hectares owned, different varieties can be found—from most traditional varieties like Colorino to international ones like Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

Emilia, Silvio Nardi’s youngest daughter, joined the business in 1985 and since 1990 has succeeded her father in the general management of the estate, and has undertaken a reorganization of the vineyards and the cellar.
