Tenuta Maselli Brunello di Montalcino 2005

$95.00
Excl. tax

A small producer of Brunello in Tuscany, Italy by the name of Pinino, recently purchased an even smaller producer. With purchase of the estate came a few hundred cases of Brunello that had not been labeled by the winery. So, Panino put a label on the wine, calling it Tenuta Maselli, and sold the bulk of it to Harry Poulakakos ( the Harry whose name adorns more than a few restaurants in the financial district and is himself a legend in the wine world). This is a one-time bottling with a one-time label. The wine will only be found in New York City. Tenuta Maselli is classic old world Brunello, no dark over-extracted fruit, no aging in small french barrique (barrels) here. Instead you'll find complex dark red fruit flavors with accents of truffle, leather and firm, dusty tannins. Medium to full-bodied with a rustic elegance.
