Cortonesi

Working with two of Montalcino's finest sites, Cortonesi was one of the early pioneers of "single vineyard" Brunello, having moved from an estate blend to two separate wines in the 1990s: one in the north of Montalcino in La Manella; the other, Poggiarelli, on one of Montalcino's most revered terroirs in the south-east by Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a site shared with other great producers including Mastrojanni.

Both wines express two different aspects of Brunello - the former, in the cooler north, reveals a floral character with bright fruit, whilst Poggiarelli in the south-east is a more serious affair entirely with that extraordinary minerally character you only occasionally find in Montalcino's greatest wines.

The estate is run by Tomasso Cortonesi, whose terroir-driven approach to Brunello is leading to wines that frankly keep getting better and better. Most impressive of all are their extremely sensible prices, though with growing prestige how long they will stay so low remains to be seen.
