As good as the profound 2010 was, this incredible 2011 has us utterly smitten. We cannot remember a Brunello tasting this delicious this young. It is a triumph of a wine. It is perhaps the best example we've tasted of the late Henri Jayer's impact on Lionel's winemaking. Though the fruit and character are all Montalcino, there's an elegant soul of great Burgundy that runs throughout. For those that bought the amazing 2010, this is one to crack into while you're waiting for that to hit its peak. "The prettiest Brunello I've ever tasted. I had the opportunity to taste several Brunello di Montalcinos from 2011, and to a bottle they paled in comparison to this tremendous wine from Cupano." - Richard Bray, Swig Wines


Press Note:

Selected by Michel Rolland and Andreas Larsson - for Cite du Vin opening stock - "This is the 2011 from Cupano, which is really one of the high-end producers of Brunello di Montalcino. This 2011 has got some evolution already, displaying a very elegant nose and I call this style of Brunello more, let’s say, Burgundian. I always find texture being very silky and rounded and yet powerful at the same time. The nose here is extraordinary, really fine with floral notes of violet rose, tobacco, almost cigar box with a fine spiciness and sweet but still that sour red cherry I associate with the variety. A really good grip on the palate, plenty of really fine tannins in the background, giving a good lift and a very dense texture. Notes of chocolate praline, cocoa powder, sweet red berries, fine spiciness and very long and intense finish. A wine I think it’s still youthful but perfectly drinkable and it certainly does have the capacity for another 10-15 years in a good cellar. A really fine, powerful, silky and refined Brunello di Montalcino." - Andreas Larsson - Former Best Sommelier in the World
