Description

Another Brunello from the stellar 2016 vintage.  If you haven't stocked up on wines from this vintage, you are missing perhaps the finest wines produced in Montalcino in a generation.  The 2015s are pretty darn good too.  Brunello had been having a Tom Brady-esque run the last couple of "seasons".

If you would also like to add some of the wonderful Brunello that we have in inventory to your order, the GEMS discount code will work for those wines too.

Winemaker Notes

This full-bodied wine offers intense aromas and flavors of red berries offset by notes of leather and incense, supported by firm, elegant tannins. 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 and only the top 70% of the hand harvested grapes is used to make the wine. The fruit is carefully handpicked and sorted. The wine is aged in two types of oak and in the bottle before release.

Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper.

Critical Acclaim

Jeb Dunnuck 95 Points 
The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has aromatics of savory dried herbs, black plum, cola, and stony earth. The palate is fruit forward and full of ripe cherry, balsamic, and iron rich minerality. There are silky tannins that emerge from its fruit, along with balanced acidity. Though it is open and generous now, there is lots of life for this to unfold over time. Drink 2024-2034.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 Points
The Tenute Silvio Nardi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a big impact in the glass thanks to its dark color saturation and the pretty intensity of its aromas that range from dark fruit and plum to soft potting soil and grilled herb. You get beautiful balance here, even more so when you allow the bottle to breathe for a few hours. A twofold delivery of freshness and tannic backbone gives the wine the DNA required to hold 10 years or more. Rating: 95+

James Suckling 95 Points 
A creamy and juicy Brunello with dried-berry, peach and dusty-earth character. It’s full-bodied, chewy and very intense. Lots of fruit, yet reserved and toned with tannins that stay with you throughout. Give it at least three of four years to open. Try after 2024.
