Goedhuis, September 2015
Gentle crimson red with generous cherry fruit aromas. This balances a fine succulence of fruit, with intensity and firm but nicely integrated tannins, giving the wine verve and personality. Last paired with a homemade carbonara and it was simply delicious!
Antonio Galloni, March 2015,
Nardi's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a juicy, succulent wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, spice and floral notes lift from the glass. Racy and open-knit, the 2010 Brunello is already quite expressive. 2015-2025
James Suckling, March 2015,
Aromas of blackberry, stone, slate, oyster shell, and truffle that turns to full body, soft and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This goes on for minutes on the palate. A savory and gorgeous wine. Drink or hold.
The Nardis are one of the oldest Brunello producing families; their estate dates back to 1895. Regarded as one of the finest expressions of Italian winemaking, Brunello di Montalcino is produced exclusively from Sangiovese grapes around the town of Montalcino in southern Tuscany. The Nardis' elegant wines are characterised by a pure, silky mouthfeel, terrific intensity and superb sweetness.
Located southwest of Chianti, Montalcino came into its own in the late 1880s when local producer,Biondi-Santi, discovered a Sangiovese clone in his vineyard that was darker in colour than the rest. Its colour, however, was not its only attribute. It produced a wine with notable body, structure and length. He named it ‘brunello' meaning little dark one. This grape's genetic properties along with Montalcino's relatively temperate climate combine to create a wine stylistically different to that of more northerly Chianti. They are usually released approximately 5 years after the vintage following 2 to 4 years ageing in wood. The denomination of Riserva indicates a wine usually produced with more concentrated grapes than the traditional cuvéeand requires a minimum of one additional year of ageing.Today, Montalcino has become one of the most sought after appellations in the Tuscan region.
