…like being connected to a unique piece of the earth when you taste this.
100 points, James Suckling

Possibly immortal…This is an epic wine in the making.”
Eric Guido, Vinous

Valdicava's ‘Vigna Montosoli’ 2019 is only the third vintage to be released and uniquely (we believe) is the only wine ever to score 100 points (JS) in every year of its production (2015, 2016 & now 2019). Montosoli is Montalcino’s most famous site, which Eric Guido calls "a true Grand Cru of the region, with its own unique soils of rock, mineral-rich marls, loam, quartz, shale and limestone". The production from this area is synonymous with sumptuously smooth and elegant wines, delicate minerality, longevity and striking aromatics, and from the magnificent 2019 vintage which Guido calls "an embarrassment of riches for collectors" represents the highest peaks that Brunello can attain.

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:

100/100James Suckling

"The nose is so pure and subtle with a sophistication and ethereal notion to it. It just makes you sit back and ponder the world. Like sitting in a pasture of mountains. Medium to full body with ultra-fine tannins that are endless and glorious in every sense. It’s like being connected to a unique piece of the earth when you taste this. Just-ripe berries with dried flowers, shell fish shell, and subtle mushroom and bark. Lasts so long on the palate. Endless. Drinkable because it is perfectly balanced, but it will be better in three to six years and beyond."

97/100Eric Guido, Vinous

"Possibly immortal, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Montosoli evolves slowly in the glass, at first dark and dusty with dried violets, cedar and clove. Patience rewards the taster as complex hints of spiced oranges emerge, followed by suggestions of lavender, chalk dust and wild strawberries. This floods the palate with textures of pure silk, weighty yet energetic, with a dense wave of tart wild berry fruits underscored by salty mineral tones and licorice. A core of brisk acidity maintains harmony throughout as a bitter tinge of boysenberry and cocoa settles in, framed by youthfully gripping tannins. The 2019 Vigna Montosoli is an unbridled beast in need of taming. This is an epic wine in the making."
