Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 'Madonna del Piano' 2007
Valdicava is located in the Montosoli area which is famous in Montalcino for creating wines with a great balance of body and aromas. They pay the utmost attention to maintaining the individual characteristics of their wine in order to exalt the spirit of the place, the 'genius loci' of their estate.
98 Points - James Suckling
An impressively structured wine. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of violets. Full body, with velvety and rich tannins. Very tannic and powerful yet the tannins are polished and pretty. Layers of everything here.
98 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Here's an unforgettable wine that absolutely makes the case for 2007 being one of the best vintages of late in Montalcino. The wine is broad and polished with masculine tones of dark fruit, leather and tobacco. These aromas evolve so quickly and with such pulsing intensity, that the wine comes alive suddenly. There are dusty mineral shadings at the back with tightly textured tannins.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is another super-finessed wine. Subtle floral notes meld into expressive red berries in a sumptuous Brunello that captures the essence of the vintage. The style is rich and deeply textured. Once again, finesse rules the day.
95 Points - Wine Spectator
A vibrant, taut style, delivering aromas and flavours of cherry, raspberry, spice and mineral tightly wound around a core of steely acidity and dense tannins. Well-proportioned and set for a long evolution, this version is very fresh and long. Best from 2016 through 2035.
