Delicious Brunellos to tempt the palate include Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Phenomena Sesti 2005, available in magnums or Sesti’s great straight Brunello di Montalcino 2005 at £414/12.
If you’re not swayed by Johnny’s aversion and appreciate excellent Barolo, you must try Luigi Pira’s luxurious Barolo Vigna Marenca 2007 at £476.05/12 or Carlo Revello’s seductive Barolo Vigna Conca 2006 at £470.05/12
Each to their own!
