Category: Italy, TOSCANA, Tenute Silvio Nardi, Montalcino, 2016

“The Tenute Silvio Nardi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a big impact in the glass thanks to its dark color saturation and the pretty intensity of its aromas that range from dark fruit and plum to soft potting soil and grilled herb. You get beautiful balance here, even more so when you allow the bottle to breathe for a few hours. A twofold delivery of freshness and tannic backbone gives the wine the DNA required to hold 10 years or more.” 95+ Points, Monica Larner, Wine Advocate November 2020

James Suckling Tasting Note

“A creamy and juicy Brunello with dried-berry, peach and dusty-earth character. It’s full-bodied, chewy and very intense. Lots of fruit, yet reserved and toned with tannins that stay with you throughout. Give it at least three of four years to open. Try after 2024.” 95 Points, James Suckling, October 2020

Wine Spectator Tasting Note

A mix of cherry, plum, leather, earth and iron flavors mark this red. Starts out rich and supple in texture, then the assertive tannins sweep in midpalate through the finish. Finds a good balance in the end and finishes long. Best from 2025 through 2045. 25,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported. 93 Points, Bruce Sanderson, June 2021

Food Pairing

Pair with steak or rich fish such as sturgeon, tuna or salmon
