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.

A complex red with rose petals, violets, crushed stones and cherries follows through to a full body and chewy tannins that are poised and polished. Extremely long and intense. A top wine for the vintage. This needs three or four years, maybe more, to come together.
