Tasting Notes

Good full red. Intense aromas of red cherry, sweet spices, coffee and herbs; this is richer and deeper than the classico Brunello. Then more austere on the palate and less forthcoming presently than that wine, with minerally red cherry and forest floor flavors. Finishes very long, clean and very saline. This will repay cellaring for a decade or so

Score: 94+Ian d'Agata, vinous.com, March 2017

A tight and compressed ripe wine with spices, berries and ripe fruit. Medium body, a solid core of fruit and a long and flavorful finish. Subtle and structured. Drink in 2020.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto sees fruit sourced from a vineyard site located on a sunny, east-facing slope just in front of the new winery. The well-draining limestone soils make for even ripening of fruit and contribute to the wine's rich suppleness. Dried cherry and blackberry segues to spice, cured leather, tar and cola. The wine is darkly concentrated and powerful. One thing I noticed is that Vigna Loreto gives the impression of offering less acidity and overall sharpness compared to the Brunello annata. For that reason, I prefer the base Brunello in 2012 by a tiny margin.
