Aromas of red plum, cherry, and kirsch with hints of flowers. The palate is lush and silky with lingering notes of cherry, herbs, and mineral.

The 2016 Brunello was aged for 30 months in Slavonian and French oak barrels. Perfumed and lifted with fresh raspberry fruit, roses, sweet herbs, and dusty earth, with a delicate concentration of color, the palate is medium-bodied, with refined tannins and notes of fresh red cherry, orange zest, and clove. This is a beautifully elegant expression and lovely work by Andrea Cortonesi that I look forward to revisiting over the next 15 years.

The Voliero 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to rich, fruity fiber with aromas of dark fruit, blackberry preserves, red brick and scorched earth. This is a saturated and accessible expression from Montalcino to enjoy in the near or medium-term with a nice steak and grilled porcino mushrooms. The grapes are fermented in steel with indigenous yeasts and aged in Slavonian oak. This is a 7,800-bottle production.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino takes a more poised, feminine and refined approach to the vintage. Sweet roses, wild strawberry, leather and peppery herbs create a remarkably pretty display. The textures here are velvety; yet energy remains high, casting polished red berry fruits over a core of zesty acids and spice, while fine tannins build toward the close. It's long yet heroically structured, with inner florals slowly tapering off. The 2016 Voliero will require a good amount of time to come fully into focus.
