Cortonesi

Formerly known as La Mannella until renamed “Cortonesi” in 2017, the estate is now run by Tommaso Cortonesi and his siblings after taking over from their father Marco. Cortonesi produces two distinct Brunello wines each year; the first borrows the name La Mannella and fruit comes from nearby the celebrated Montosoli cru, whilst the second special selection is Poggiarelli. This vineyard site is located in the Castelnuovo dell'Abate area (in the southern half of the appellation) with vineyards as high as 420 meters above sea level.

Cortonesi Brunello di Montalcino Poggiarelli 2016 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96+)

The Cortonesi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Poggiarelli draws its fruit from a vineyard planted in the 1970s and replanted in part during the 1990s. Its fruit has made this designate wine since 1998, and like many of the Selezioni (and the Brunello cru expressions), this wine shows a pretty mineral character that lifts above the bright red fruit. It's absolutely true that these special sections from Montalcino are always recognized by their terrain or soil-adjacent aromas. In this case, I can smell those flinty or gravel-like tones from the schistous Galestro rocks. That special aromatic signature is followed by dark fruit and balsam herb, firm tannins and bright acidity. This is a limited 4,000-bottle release.
