    Valdicava

    About Valdicava

    Described by Robert Parker as “top three or four Brunello di Montalcino producers”, the estate of Valdicava, sits right in the very top tier of Brunello wineries.

    Currently in the loving hands of Vincenzo Abbruzzese, Valdicava is located in the northern part of Montalcino. The estate overlooks Tuscany at an altitude of 300m. At this height, the vineyards of Valdicava enjoys a cooler climate than most Brunello peers. Valdicava is probably most known for their stunning Riserva Madonna del Piano which consistently rivals the finest wines made anywhere in Brunello di Montalcino.

    James Suckling (98)

    A juicy, young Brunello with berry, dried mushroom and flower character. Orange peel, too. Full body, firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So complex and beautiful. It goes on for minutes. I love the balance that makes it so enjoyable to try now but it will age for decades ahead. Try to leave it until 2021.

    Wonderful aromas of roses and sliced plums with wet earth and truffles. Then turns to raspberries and blackberries. Cherries, too. Full and firm with super integrated tannins that melt into the wine. It flows from the center palate in a beautiful sheet of fruit and tannins. Extremely long and coated with great finesse.

    2004

    Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano 2004 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (96+)

    The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano continues to develop very positively. This huge, concentrated Madonna del Piano dazzles for the richness of its fruit and the delineation of its aromas. The clean, vibrant finish suggests many years of cellaring potential. The Valdicava Brunellos are often misunderstood when young because they possess so much richness, but with time in bottle the wines turn more delicate and complete. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

    An impressively structured wine. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of violets. Full body with velvety, rich tannins. Very tannic and powerful, yet the tannins are polished and pretty. Layers of everything here. Give this another three to four years before opening.

    This opens with savory, truffle and meaty aromas with a complex and quite cryptic nose that delivers a wealth of ripe plums and cherries, cedar and fresh, violet-like flowers, as well as some earthy nuances. The palate has a very sturdy, intense and power-charged core of rich plums and dark cherries, framed in quite fierce tannins that are so long. Super Brunello Riserva here with great potential. Try from 2022.

Full-bodied, dense and linear on the palate, yet so much in balance and refined with incredible depth and consistency. The savory and juicy finish, with vivid acidity and fruit, is eye-opening.

    2011

    Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino 2011 (12x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (88)

    The 2011 Rosso di Montalcino is the result of a severe selection that resulted in no Brunello being bottled in this vintage, a decision I imagine few producers are prepared to make. Tobacco, dried herbs and sweet red cherries all flesh out in this large-scaled, powerful Rosso. There is plenty of depth to fill out the wine’s broad frame. At the same time, the 2011 is clearly evolving fairly quickly and needs to be enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2016.
