Giodo – Toscana IGT 2015 – 97 pts

This is a linear and dense red with
blackberry, black cherry and floral
aromas and flavors. Full body, tight
and powerful. This is so focused
and long. I love the fresh acidity
and solid, fruit-coated tannins. A
new wine from Carlo Ferrini’s tiny
Brunello estate. Will drink better in
2020.

From Decanter Jan 2017 – by Richard Baudains

Richard Baudains, in the last Decanter Magazine, gives a personal insight into 10 of his own favourites in the Montalcino area.

Tenute Silvio Nardi is one of his favourites.

What I love here is the sense of being immersed in natural, untamed Tuscan countryside. Muddy paths lead from one vineyard to another through rugged woodland and the vines are planted on virgin soils.

  • Manachiara, Brunello di Montalcino 2010 – 92 Points

Carlo, one of the world’s leading oenologists consults many Italian estates in their vineyard and cellar practices and is responsible for the success of many of these properties.
 

What did make the wine world pause was when Carlo decided to launch his own wines from his family estate located in the hills of Montalcino. The expectations could not have been higher, given the legendary Brunello’s that Ferrini has handcrafted along his career

This is a phenomenal Brunello from the personal vineyard of famous consukting enologist Carlo Ferrini. It shows such a richness and depth that I have seldom found in pure sangiovese. Full-bodied, yet balanced and dense, it shows so much cherry, floral and minerally character. Citrus, too.

2008 Nardi Brunello di Montalcino91 pts
The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is lovely. Tobacco, dried herbs, cedar, plums and cloves are nicely layered in the glass. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support a mid-weight finish laced with expressive floral notes. In 2008 Nardi didn’t feel conditions were ideal to bottle their top two selections, so the Brunello includes juice that would otherwise have gone into the Manachiara and Poggio Doria. Nardi’s 2008 should drink well upon release and for another decade beyond that. Vinifications lasted around 22-23 days. Nardi preferred not to go too long in 2008, fearing over-extraction given that the maturation of skins and seeds wasn’t perfect. The 2008 spent one year in French oak barrels, 25% new, followed by one year in cask. All of the parcels were vinified separately but ultimately were blended into the straight Brunello. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

 

2007 Nardi Brunello di Montalcino Manachiara90 pts
A dense, persistent wine, 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Manachiara covers every inch of the palate. Sweet, layered and nicely balanced, the 2007 captures the ripeness of the vintage, but in a slightly slender, clenched style. Cedar, new leather, spices and tobacco add complexity on the finish, which lacks the opulence of so many wines of this vintage. Perhaps another year or two in bottle will help the tannins soften to release some of the wine’s fruit. The 2007 Manachiara spent 28-29 days on the skins, followed by two and a half years in barrel. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.

 

2007 Nardi Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Doria90 pts
Nardi’s 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Poggio Doria, from the estate’s vineyards in Casale del Bosco, is quite pretty in the vintage. Sweet red cherries, freshly cut flowers, spices, licorice and mint are all beautifully layered in the glass. A wine of nuance and delineation, the 2007 impresses for its balance and sheer class. In 2007, north-facing sites were at an advantage, as the Poggio Doria makes quite clear. Wonderfully fleshy in the glass, the 2007 also has plenty of structure. Layers of fruit open up into a sexy finish laced with crushed flowers and spices. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022.
