Stella's Brunello is a work of wine art. Declassifying many of her Brunello grapes to her fantastic Rosso, only the best of the best going into this fully biodynamic wine. Her work to restore the greatness of this classic DOC will not go un-noticed for long.

If you don't know Brunello's Leading Lady already, you better start. Stella's 2008 Brunello is a perfect example of how elegant Sangiovese from Montalcino can be in a classic vintage. Drink now but don't forget to save some to drink in a couple of years!

Exceptional and pure immediately come to mind and are affirmed over 2-3 hours. This is Sangiovese Grosso in a very Burgundian, transparent and very pure expression. A new producer of sorts, the earliest wines were in 2006 under this label from what I recall. Being my first Stella the color is uncommonly lighter for a Brunello than you would expect. The nose is pure, with elegant raspberry and strawberry fruits that meld with Earthy minerality, mushroom and spice into a beautiful, sensual perfume. The palate continues the purity party, marrying a persistence and depth that reminds me again of Burgundy. A long finish carries the fruit, fresh acids and the fine, supple tannin. As great as it is now, will it reach even more heights? Only time will tell. #brunello #sangiovese

Not as great as the last time I had this wine. Still much to like (earthy, layered fruit) but a slight plummy turn seemed to indicate a storage/transfer problem.
