Winemaker's Notes

Intense ruby red color with garnet highlights. Clean, sophisticated, intense and complex aromas, rich in evolved overtomes, with hints of anise, ripe wild berries, and a light touch of vanilla. Warm with supple tannins, great structure, good length and considerable aging capacity.

Tenute Silvio Nardi’s classic Brunello is a blend of the finest grapes from the Manachiara and Casale del Bosco estates. Silvio Nardi follows the strict DOCG laws required of a classified Brunello di Montalcino. Yield is limited; only the top 70% of the grapes is used to make the wine. The fruit is carefully handpicked and sorted. Fermentation and maceration takes at least 24 days (varies with parcel) at controlled temperature of less than 86°F. Aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barriques (Allier) before 18 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Bottle aged at least 12 months before release.

Critic Ratings

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Rated 91:
Packaged with the burgundy-colored label, the Tenute Silvio Nardi 2018 Brunello di Montalcino reveals a darkly saturated, almost inky appearance with black ruby highlights. The bouquet is laced with dark cherry fruit and blackberry preserves, and there is juice and energy inside, which is very nice. A second wave of spice and mild tobacco adds to the wine's volume and intensity. I do feel the oak tannins.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 91:
Shows depth and an opulent texture enveloping black cherry, plum, earth and soy flavors, with the foundation of dusty tannins leaving an astringent feel on the finish -- so think hearty foods and protein. Best from 2026 through 2045.

James Suckling Review - Rated 93:
I like the transparent savoriness here, with aromas of currants, dried cherries, chocolate, dried flowers and bark. Medium-bodied, with gently chewy tannins and a fine, fresh and elegant finish. Drink or hold.

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 93:
The 2018 Brunello Di Montalcino is a powerful red with fleshy aromas of red plum, sweet balsamic, leather, and shitake. Full-bodied on the palate, with notes of meaty black cherry, dark soil, and tea leaf as well as gripping tannins, this robust and firmly structured wine needs to be cellared for at least a couple of years. Drink 2025-2035.
