Valdicava, Brunello di Montalcino 2006 comes from an excellent Tuscan vintage.

Valdicava's Brunellos offer a rare opportunity for Brunello lovers, making just 5000 cases of wine (at most) each vintage. This tiny ten hectare estate was relatively unknown until recently and has quickly become a rising Brunello star with a cult following. The secret is an exceptional terroir and the fact that Valdicava employs two of Italy's leading wine consultants, winemaker Attilio Pagli and agronomist Andrea Paoletti.

"Love the nose on this with blackberries, sweet tobacco, blueberries. Full body, with soft and silky tannins and a light jammy finish. Lots of dark fruits. Long finish. Loads going on in this one.” James Suckling

“This is a hugely promising, brilliant Brunello from proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese… flows with gorgeous layers of dark red fruit. This is one of the more muscular, virile wines of the vintage. Slow to reveal its character, the Valdicava Brunello will require significant patience, but I have seen the wine blossom beautifully, even in the smallest of vintages. A blast of iron, smoke, tar, licorice and new leather inform the deep, intense finish.” eRobertParker.com
