2016 Gianni Brunelli, Brunello di Montalcino, Riserva 6x75cl

RP98
"Here's a wine I am very excited to taste, given the phenomenal performance of this vintage in the annata version released last year. The Gianni Brunelli Le Chiuse di Sotto 2016 Brunello di... Montalcino Riserva reproduces that same brilliant intensity and deep inner brightness, only this Riserva has seen one more year of aging, and it shows more spice and thicker textural heft as a result. This wine is penetrating and layered with a harmonious playlist of red and purple fruits, spice, tar, cola, licorice and grilled herb. The tannins are more austere in the case of this 2,993-bottle release, and you'd do well to age it longer before popping the cork. I love the spontaneous radiance and energy captured by this estate, especially in 2016." 98 pts., Monica Larner, robertparker.com
