Gianni Brunelli 2017 Brunello di Montalcino
Laura Brunelli is one of Montalcino's great characters. A force of nature, no doubt. Following the death of her husband, Gianni, Laura has taken the lead role at her late husband's winery alongside their restaurant, Le Logge, in Sienna. It has been many years since I sold their wine, long before Noble Grape, but I am very proud that the wines have now debuted on these pages with this beautiful vintage. The 2017 is concentrated, dark, and mysterious. Laura manages to obtain a remarkable concentration in her wine, and is never heavy nor loses its typicity. The 2017 is a great vintage to drink now, but it will improve for many years.
