VALDICAVA

 

TUSCANY, ITALY

 

 

The 100-point score is as rare as it is coveted, and many great wines will never achieve that critically acclaimed “perfection” (or as close to perfection as exists!). If you are Brunello di Montalcino’s Valdicava, however, you collect these 100-point scores with astounding frequency—the winery’s highly anticipated release of the single-vineyard 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva ‘Madonna del Piano’ was recently awarded 100 points, making for a quintet of 100-point Valdicava wines over the past two decades. Stellar scores aside, the wines of Valdicava are unquestionably iconic, and showcase the greatness of Brunello di Montalcino. We’re thrilled to be able to offer a range of Valdicava labels today—including the flagship 98-point 2016 Brunello, the glorious single-vineyard 2015 ‘Madonna del Piano,’ and the unbeatable value 2019 Rosso di Montalcino. 

 

Working with the best grapes from nine different single vineyards, their 98-point 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a benchmark Brunello expression in itself, boasting floral and spice aromas that lead into powerful flavors of cranberry, tea, truffle, and earth. It is undoubtedly a hard act to follow, but the release of the single-vineyard ‘Madonna del Piano’ is breathtaking in its complexity: it’s full bodied but incredibly elegant, with a profile of dark fruit, earth, herbs, and oaky spice. Of course, this is one that’s built to age: Vinous Media’s Eric Guido recommends “not opening this...release before the 10-year mark.” While you’re waiting for your bottles of Brunello to peak, the 2019 Rosso has a bright fruit profile and softer spice notes, and is ready to enjoy upon release. With Concierge pricing below $45, it is a fraction of the price of the Brunellos, but still benefits from the meticulous care the Valdicava team guarantees for each of its wines. Given these knockout scores, we encourage Italian wine aficionados to act quickly! Our limited-time Concierge pricing is available for one week only.
