This is a beautiful, fresh 2017 Brunello with fine tannins and a medium body of cherry, bark, cedar and pine-needle flavors. It’s long and polished with ultra-fine tannins and fresh acidity. Nicely done for the vintage...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2022

Tenute Silvio Nardi is an estate worth visiting. It occupies one of the most extreme locations in the appellation, tucked away into the hills north of the town in a wild no-man's-land of its own. Once you get there, there...

An intense red, with saturated flavors of blackberry and plum shaded by earth, eucalyptus and mineral notes. All its components are in the right place, and it's backed by a spine of refined and resonant tannins. Best from...

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.

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.

The 2017 Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino is a Sangiovese Grosso varietal from Tuscany's renowned Brunello di Montalcino sub-region. This red wine, produced by Silvio Nardi, offers a solid alcohol content of 15.5% and is sealed with a traditional cork closure.

Esteemed wine critic James Suckling awarded this wine a score of 94, describing it as "a beautiful, fresh 2017 Brunello with fine tannins and a medium body of cherry, bark, cedar and pine-needle flavors." Suckling appreciates its long and polished finish, accompanied by ultra-fine tannins and fresh acidity, noting that it is "nicely done for the vintage." He suggests that it can be enjoyed now or held for future enjoyment (jamessuckling.com, 11/4/2021).

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate also lauds the 2017 Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino, giving it a score of 93. Reviewer ML highlights the estate's unique location in the hills north of the town, surrounded by Mediterranean shrub oaks and forests, which is reflected in the wine's profile. The review notes flavors of "forest floor, button mushroom and wild flowers," emphasizing the wine's silky, mid-weight character despite the hot vintage. The review further mentions that an ample 114,000 bottles are hitting the market (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 2/18/2022).

Wine Spectator’s Bruce Sanderson also rated this wine 93, describing it as "an intense red, with saturated flavors of blackberry and plum shaded by earth, eucalyptus and mineral notes." Sanderson praises its harmonious components and the refined, resonant tannins backing it. He recommends enjoying this wine from 2025 through 2042, and notes that 8,017 cases were made, with 2,393 cases imported (Wine Spectator, 6/30/2022).
