Description

Brunello of the highest class. The history of Lisini dates back to the Medicis; this is one of Montalcino’s oldest estates and a founding member of the Consorzio del vino Brunello di Montalcino. Lisini is one of the most traditional and respected producers in the region.

One of the few producers in Sant’Angelo in Colle, in the southwest of Montalcino. Woodland and wild scrubs surround the 20 hectares under vine here; it’s a rural haven of the region’s finest terroir. Altitude and soil play a leading role in the personality of Lisini’s wines. Eocene sand, clay and iron-rich soils, paired with altitudes of 300 to 400 metres, yield wines of rare expression. Winemaker Filippo Paoletti does not fall prey to modern trends or intervention in the cantina; he chooses to showcase the naked perfection of his vineyards. Opting to use traditional long fermentations and botti grande, he produces classic.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino excites the senses with a wonderfully pure and fruity display of wild strawberries, woodland herbs, wet stone and flowery undergrowth. Both savory and sweet, the textures are like silk, with waves of ripe red fruits and spices which give way to salty minerals, licorice, hints of black tea and a coating of fine tannin. While youthfully structured, there’s a juicy freshness to be found throughout, creating harmonious balance and symmetry that makes the 2016 Lisini so easy to like already. That said, the best is yet to come. Eric Guido, Vinous
