TENUTE SILVIO NARDI BRUNELLO MANACHIARA 2012

Wine Region: Siena, Italy

Tasting Notes

This is classy and elegant with gorgeous aromas of ripe berries and plums along with sweet spices, leather, floral, minerals and a savory edge rounding things out. On the palate, this is very well structured with a fine, silky texture, showing beautiful balance and finesse as it heads into the long, pretty finish.

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 wasn’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 Nardi’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.
