Brunello 2016 is a staggering vintage, with all peaks of the 2015s yet greater consistency. The wines marry elegance and refinement with intensity, grip and power, revealing hauntingly persistent tannins and the promise of incredible complexity in the future.
These wines are undoubtedly destined for greatness, with many pundits talking up 2016 as potentially the best-ever vintage for Brunello. Perhaps this is why merchants have been eager to release the wines so early!
