Product description

The Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Vigna la Casa was born in 1977 in one of the most prestigious vineyards in the municipality of Montalcino, a wine with a gentle and elegant soul that can be considered a true oenological jewel. The La Casa vineyard (5 hectares), is located on the hill of Montosoli, with an exposure, terrain and altitude such as to preserve the grapes from the mists and spring frosts guaranteeing a high quality of the crops.

96 Points - James Suckling    Aromas of berry, toffee and chocolate with cherry undertones. It’s full-bodied with a tight, focused palate with ripe tannins and a flavorful finish. Tight and polished. Needs bottle age to open and show its true potential. Try after 2023.

95 Points - Wine Spectator    This red displays a mix of macerated plum, cherry, mint, earth, iron and sanguine flavors. In the savory camp, without the purity of many of its peers, at least today, yet harmonious and long, with dusty tannins on the finish. Be patient Best from 2023 through 2040.

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Rose, graphite, star anise and eucalyptus aromas come to the forefront. The chiseled, racy palate features juicy morello cherry, licorice and coffee bean framed in close-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2023–2031.

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck    Vigna La Casa is a five-hectare vineyard on the hill of Montosoli and was one of the first to be bottled as a single-vineyard in 1977. Medicinal herbs, balsamic, and black cherry fruit on the nose of the 2016 Brunello Di Montalcino La Casa follow through to the palate with consistency. The La Casa is fuller in body, with more depth and intensity. Texturally, it offers a generous and pure mid-palate of fruit, with tannins that build on the finish. Drink over the next 10 to 15 years.
