Cerbaiona, Brunello di Montalcino 2012

Cerbaiona is one of the greatest estates in Tuscany. They make classic Brunello, meaning wine that speaks to the land and savory character inherent to sangiovese, rather than oak or an abundance of fruit. Fresh, age-worthy, and frustratingly scarce, this is a wine collectors should load up on, and everyone should try the next time red sauce enters the dinner equation.

Here's what you should know about it:
  • This is made entirely from sangiovese, which is farmed organically on a small, garden-like vineyard in Montalcino.
  • Cerbaiona was founded by Diego Molinari, a former Alitalia pilot, and his wife, Nora, in the early ‘80s. They sold the estate in 2015.
  • Cerbaiona is located at a midpoint in Montalcino, which allows them to strike a balance between the ripeness of the south and freshness of the north.
Things we actually said...

“Cerbaiona’s founders no longer make wine, and the wine they did make was both age-worthy, and extremely limited in volume. Translation: this is collectible stuff. It’s also delicious.”

— Grant Reynolds, Parcelle Wine
