The Cortonesi family has been a part of the Montalcino region for decades. Established in the 1970’s and located in one of the most valuable areas in the region their La Mannella farm and vineyards cover 138 acres – 19 of which are devoted to producing a deep and elegant Brunello di Montalcino. The winery works according to tradition while employing modern technologies to enhance the wines made.

Vibrant and well-built, this wine has power to match the cherry, leather, mineral and earth aromas and flavors. As it is still very young, there are some tight tannins on the long and spicy finish that will mellow with a few years’ aging.

This wine is a perfect accompaniment for red meats and various Italian cheeses.

Press Reviews

International Wine Report

95 points

Mature and decidedly pleasurable in the sensory bouquet alternating notes of raspberries, blackcurrants, geraniums, cherries, mandarin blossom and black prunes. Chinotto and black tea leaves describe the secondary profile. Full bodied, fine grain soft tannins and a spicy, complex finale that closes harmonically and with medium persistency. Spicy and hot in the closure showing strength and character.
