A captivating, radiant wine, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli offers striking depth and nuance. Sweet dark cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and tobacco all flesh out in the glass. The Pelagrilli is without question one of the best wines of the year. Crushed flowers, tobacco, mint and sweet dried cherries grace the long, precise finish. The Pelagrilli is a blend of fruit from the north (80%) and south (20%) of Montalcino, aged in 45-50% new oak. I especially like the sense of energy here.

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Pelagrilli is a fantastic wine made from some of the estate's most promising vines. Still relatively young in age, the vines behind the Pelagrilli selection show delicate floral nuances mixed in with bright red fruit, spice and balsam herb. The wine is elaborate and compelling thanks to warm aromas of wet earth or white truffle that emerges from the bouquet. Pretty layers of smoke and crushed granite appear on the close.

Underbrush, menthol, cherries marinated in spirits and star anise are some of the aromas you'll discover on this bold Brunello. The hearty palate offers up chewy blackberry, blueberry jam and a confectionary note alongside round tannins. You'll also detect the warmth of alcohol on the finish. Drink 2016 through 2021.

A lightweight version, with dense, friendly tannins shoring up the tobacco, dried berry, earth and tea flavors. Ends on the dry side, showing tobacco and briar accents. Best from 2018 through 2027. 1,000 cases made.
