2004 valdicava, brunello di montalcino, riserva madonna piano
Why We're Buying
Valdicava Madonna del Piano Riserva is a textbook example of world-class winemaking. Valdicava only uses one vineyard to produce its Brunello and only uses harvests from exceptional vintages. Anything less than the best is unexceptionable. It’s part of the reason why a single bottle retails for more than $200.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
