Benvenuto Brunello 2019 in Montalcino

by Laura Gray on January 21, 2019

Fancy getting to grips with 2014 Brunello? Tickets can be bought for Benvenuto Brunello in Montalcino (16, 17 and 18 February) via the Consorzio website  – and do consider lodgings near the city centre . Bear in mind these wise words from Italian wine blogger @dobianchi regarding the unexpected customer value of challenging vintages, keeping an open mind and supporting smaller wineries. Of course there are always jewels to be found in every vintage. As a starting point, here is a list of some 2014 Brunellos that showed extremely well in a recent tasting in Rome. 89 wines, 23 tasters and 10 2014 in the top twenty…. you’re welcome! We did not produce this vintage (see here and here) but I am looking forward to doing some tasting myself next month.
