Buy Ridolfi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Cherry cola, licorice, fresh berry fruit, cigar box and smoky tobacco give this wine a bright, albeit slightly rustic, personality. In the mouth, it shows nicely balanced acidity and tannins, providing extra length to the dry, elegant finish.  (May 2013)

Wine maker notes
Loads of dark fruit aromas, tobacco, smoke, tar, and licorice all come alive in this big, brooding Riserva. Caresses the palate with freshly cut flowers, sweet red berries, spices, and mint. Layered, polished and exceptionally beautiful, impressive for its silkiness and finesse. Produced in only the best vintages from hand-selected fruit harvested from the oldest vines of the estate. The wine is aged for upwards of 3 years in a combination of large Slavonian botte and small French oak barrels. It refines a further 18+ months in bottle. A great match for grilled steak, veal osso bucco, and decadent chocolate desserts. While approachable upon release, this wine will only improve with proper cellaring for up to 25 years.

The Ridolfi wines are the result of a passion and a soul that have brought together stories and generations, successfully carried on nowadays by the Peretti family that has adopted these principals. The passion for wine, nature’s gift that achieves great value in the hands of man. A gift that needs to be grown and preserved because only the pureness of its quality can restore the fullness of scents, colours and tastes. The spirit of determination, of a business that is strict in its choices and its methods, in the many phases of winemaking that are still rigorously manual. Demanding and ambitious in its aims: to express the typicality of this land and to leave a sign of its uniqueness in the chalices of the world. In a land of ancient civilizations full of art and history, that the landscape characterizes with oaks, chestnut trees, olive trees, pines, vineyards, among hills dotted with cypresses in Florence in 1290, three Ridolfi families stem from an ancient Tuscan lineage. One of these the Ridolfi of Borgo - originated the Sienese branch called ”dalla Contrada” , where it had its own estates. For centuries, priors, gonfaloniers and illustrious celebrities distinguished themselves under its aegis. Nowadays that very coat of arms shines on the labels of a great winery. Two estates - Ridolfi in Montalcino and Tenuta Rocchetto in Larciano - over 54 hectares of land, 21 of which are cultivated vineyards. And a persistent research for excellence, heritage of a noble Tuscan taste that has been handed on unaltered through history.
