"Very ripe style of Brunello with plum and cream aromas that verge on prunes. Full and velvety with lots of juicy finish. Mouthwatering acidity giving an almost meaty impression. Delicious now."
Similar to the incredible back to back vintages in Bordeaux, the famed Tuscan wine region of Brunello di Montalcino witnessed two historic vintages in 2006 & 2007.
The Coldisole 2007 from Lionello Marchesi is a great example of a top rated Brunello that is accessible in its youth. A successful European industrialist, Marchesi followed his passion for wine and purchased three estates in Tuscany. He called a 11 acre plot on the eastern part of Montalcino, Coldisole, the "Hill of the Sun," and some of the best wines from the estate are bottled under this label.
