2004 Brunello di Montalcino

Brunello di Montalcino is considered to be one of the richest and most prestigious wines produced in Italy, largely due to its exclusivity.  Wines of Brunello have an impressive richness of fruit, great concentration, powerful tannins, and great aging potential. According to James Suckling of Wine Spectator, “Just a few days after they harvested their grapes in 2004, producers of Brunello di Montalcino were speaking of a fantastic vintage.” The vintage is said to have resulted in “wonderfully perfumed and majestically refined Brunellos with an excellent balance of fruit and refined tannins.” Many estates, both well-known and smaller estates produced high-scoring wines, some of which we will be tasting in May.

TVC will present 8 exclusive wines both from classic producers and contemporary producers, all from an exceptional vintage year.   We hope you can join us in May.
