Wine Region: Siena, Italy
Grapes: Sangiovese GrossoÂ
This vineyard-designate wine shows dark and austere aromas of cassis, dried berry, leather, pipe tobacco, licorice, dried ginger and prune. From the elegant 2006 vintage, the wine shows nuanced elegance and a long, silky feel on the close.
About the Winery
When Silvio Nardi purchased the Casale del Bosco estate in 1950, Montalcino was a little, rural village, the powerful Consorzio del Vino Brunello wasnâ€™t yet an idea, and Nardi was the first "foreigner" to invest in Montalcino (he was from Umbria). Today, Montalcino is a renowned wine community with many international investors, and the 36 vineyard plots of Tenute Silvio Nardi extend east and west of the town on three separate estates. Since 1990, Silvio Nardiâ€™s youngest daughter, Emilia Nardi, has focused on vineyard development and produced wines of depth that are profound expressions of the land they come from.
