Review: 2016 Renieri Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Review: 2016 Renieri Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

Renieri is a member of the Bacci family of wines, which produces a wide range of wines on five different estates around the main DOCG region in Tuscany. Situated in the southern part of Montalcino, Renieri primarily focuses on the Sangiovese varietal, and today we’re uncorking a 2016 Brunello Riserva centered mainly around that grape.

The wine exhibits a beautiful ruby color, with a complex procession of menthol and mint on the nose at first, followed by notes of mulberry and dark cherry. The body further entices with hints of raspberry, cedar, and licorice, while pepper and clove emerge on a very long finish, rich with immense flavor. The tannins and acidity are well-balanced for a red this full-bodied, and its gradual evolution captivates with full attention and intrigue. This is ready to drink now, but waiting a year or two might just prove a sound investment of time.
