This eleventh Vintages release of Silvio Nardiís Brunello nay well be the best to date as it hails from a terrific 2016 vintage.

TASTING NOTE: The Tenute Silvio Nardi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a big impact in the glass thanks to its dark color saturation and the pretty intensity of its aromas that range from dark fruit and plum to soft potting soil and grilled herb. You get beautiful balance here, even more so when you allow the bottle to breathe for a few hours. A twofold delivery of freshness and tannic backbone gives the wine the DNA required to hold 10 years or more. Drink date: 2023-2043.
