Brunello di Montalicino, Scopetone 2016

Availability: In stock
"Earthy aromas of tilled soil, black-skinned berry and leather lead the way. The savory, succulent palate offers ripe black cherry, ground clove and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2032." - Wine Enthusiast
 

 

About the Producer:

Located in the famed Scarnacuoia cru, adjacent to the Montosoil cru and neighbor Pertimali, Scopetone completely outclasses its peers. These wines flaunt a finesse and site-specific character that belies the powerful core lurking below. Winemaking is overseen by consultant Attilio Pagli, who uses a minimum of new oak, allowing old vine character to shine through with aged plummy fruits, saddle leather and tobacco notes. The superb, rare Rosso is a smaller-scaled and more approachable version of the Brunello.
