Vincenzo Abbruzzese has been the director of the Valdicava vinery since 1987, and he learned how to make the greatest Brunello di Montalcino from his grandfather, whose production dates back to 1968. Some wine critics believe that Valdicava might be argued to be one of the top three or four Brunello di Montalcino producers.
Traditionalists and modernizers coexist in Montalcino, with the most progressive wineries favoring smaller 225-liter French oak barriques over traditional grandi botti. Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for great wine collectors.
Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino is stunning. As this deep, strong wine begins to open up, dark red cherries, plums, spices, leather, and tobacco wrap around the palate. The fine, smooth tannins add to the sensation of elegance. Just order and enjoy.
