Benvenuto Brunello 2013 is coming!!!!

Posted by on February 5, 2013 in Wine Events | 2 comments

Every February the new vintages of Brunello are released in Montalcino and to say it is a big deal is an understatement!  This year the 2008 Brunello and the 2007 Riserva Brunello are finally making their debut.

I hear through the grapevine that the 2008(s) are decent but the 2007 Riserva(s) are exceptional.  I look forward to tasting ALL of them myself!

Yes, I am going!  By bus, from Cortona with a group of most probably other rowdy wine lovers.  I plan on singing the brindisino song at the top of my lungs all the way home.

Not super informative, but the Consorzio del Brunello di Montalcino website has a little more info.  Be sure to check back with me after the 24th and I’ll report on what I find!
