Marco Lazzeretti Brunello di Montalcino 2016
- Rich, full-bodied
This is our third vintage of this stunner and it’s been a hit with our mofos. It’s not a wine for the faint of heart, but rather one that’s concentrated, dense and explosive in flavour. Perhaps you’d open a bottle or two this year just to get a feel for the wine, but then lay the rest down to age. It’ll unwind beautifully as the years go on with absolutely no rush to pop a cork. Look out for blackberries, leather, forest floor, cherry, anise and pepper on the nose and palate. The tannins will be tightly wound and quite apparent now, but those will integrate nicely as time goes on. Check out the Winescritic review below for a bit more detail.
“Rich and enveloping in the main profile it offers hints of blackberries, raspberries, black plums and cloves. On the palate it shows a persuasive and compact full body that slowly emerges towards a delicate and juicy closure that excites right away. Better from 2021.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Ah...Tuscany. The home of rolling hills, extra virgin olive oil, Steak Florentine and, of course, Chianti. Everything here is about the earth, and it shows through in the produce. Earthy, vinous, purely rustic and unadulterated. Some of our most enjoyable experiences have come from here. They don't generally come cheap, but they're well worth it.
