The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino was aged for 30 months in large French oak, followed by resting in concrete vats before bottling. Forward and polished aromatics of primary black cherry fruit, vanilla, sweet licorice, and crushed lavender are followed by an approachable palate, with just ripe plum, baking spice, and fresh earth. The tannins are supple and round, balanced with refreshing acidity without being austere. This is a very pretty wine that will cast a large net for enjoyment as there is purity matched with ease. I love this for its freshness now or enjoy over the next ten years.

A whiff of crushed stone and sage gives way to black raspberry with an underpinning of white pepper in a display of contrasts. It’s silky in texture with a polished feel to its ripe red fruits, motivated by juicy acids, while taking on notes of licorice and spice. Round tannins complete the expression, providing classic grip without slowing the wine’s progression and leaving hints of spiced orange to linger. Giodo’s 2016 won’t require years of cellaring to show its best, yet it will offer a long and open drinking window. -- Eric Guido
