At our 2019 Anteprima tasting we showed the first bottles to leave the estate of Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino 2019, and it was so popular we had a raft of pre-orders that will devour most of our allocation. We have been waiting patiently since to offer what is a phenomenal pair of releases from one of the region’s finest producers in one of its best ever vintages.

Valdicava are firmly in the top echelon of Brunello, with Vincenzo Abruzzese, whose grandfather was one of the original growers, propelling the estate to the stratosphere. Only around 5000 cases are made each year across the portfolio and the dedication to quality is second to none here with Valdicava electing to bottle no Montosoli or Riserva in 2017 or 2018, nor even producing an estate Brunello in 2018! Such an obsession with excellence guarantees that this set of releases is the crème de la crème – well worth the two years wait for a new Valdicava Brunello.

What the critics say:

97/100James Suckling

"Aromatic with black cherries, oranges and cedar. Very perfumed. Medium to full body. Firm tannins. The wood is showing a bit now but will come through nicely. This is a structured and toned red. Give this three or four years more in bottle. Try after 2026."

95/100Eric Guido, Vinous

"Just a baby today, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino is darkly alluring with a youthfully coy bouquet that requires coaxing as dusty earth and dried flowers slowly take on hints of incense and black cherries. It flows easily across the palate, silky and refined with building tension as brisk acidity and minerals mingle with edgy tannins toward the close. The 2019 finishes dramatically long and structured with a pleasantly bitter tinge. A resonance of salted licorice and cedar lingers on and on. Valdicava has captured the radiance of the vintage."
