Valdicava Madonna del Piano Riserva
Great weight, drive, minerality and purity of fruit on the palate, whilst the nose offers a heady mix of cardamon, cumin, earth, pepper, chalk, violets, tar and dark berries.
"A complex red with rose petals, violets, crushed stones and cherries follows through to a full body and chewy tannins that are poised and polished. Extremely long and intense. A top wine for the vintage. This needs three or four years, maybe more, to come together."
98/100 James Suckling
Valdicava's Madonna del Piano is 1 of only 3 2012 Riservas to score 98 points being the top score for the vintage.
The style of the Valdicava wines is powerful and concentrated, with great weight, drive, minerality and purity of fruit on the palate, whilst the nose offers a heady mix of cardamon, cumin, earth, pepper, chalk, violets, tar and dark berries. Perhaps most importantly of all for a 'modern' style Brunello, the use of oak is restrained and unobtrusive, supporting the wine's structure without overwhelming its character.
