The wine is medium plus bodied, elegant with nuanced detail. Cherry notes, spices, Mediterranean shrubbery and a minerality rarely found in a Brunello. The refined tannins glaze around the palate with silky smooth texture.
What really stands out is a freshness quality which gives you a hint of the aging potential of the 2018. Some are saying the 2018 will be the Brunello everyone wants to drink in 20 years.
From the southernmost sections of the Montalcino appellation you'll find the Corte dei Venti estate winery. Owned and operated by Clara Monaci, her family has been making wine in Montalcino since 1943. Her family's estate, Corte dei Venti, which translates to "Court of the Winds," is named after a unique microclimate in Montalcino. This section of Montalcino is the sunniest, characterized by hilly slopes, red soils, and constant sea winds that keep the vineyards healthy.
