Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Here is a dense and meaty Tusan red that flaunts its immediate power, structure and intensity. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva gli Angeli is robust and deep thanks to a generous offering of dark fruit, spice and tar-like aromas. Fruit is carefully selected for this wine, and the grapes are fermented in stainless steel. Post fermentation, the wine goes into large Slavonian oak casks for four years. The finish is soft and supple with sweet berry flavors. This wine has made an impressive jump forward in this vintage.

Wine Enthusiast
Pipe tobacco, blue flower, plum and dark culinary spice are some of the aromas you'll find on this full-bodied red. The aromas carry over to the firmly structured palate along with dried cherry, orange zest and star anise. Firm fine-grained tannins provide the backbone. Drink from 2022 through 2032.

James Suckling
Striking autumnal sous bois type character here. This is a remarkably suave and supple Brunello Riserva that stands out in the crowd in spite of the classic red fruit character. A silky long finish. Drink or hold.

Wine & Spirits
The late Sergio Rossi founded this estate in 1975 with the purchase of 16 vineyard acres from the daughter of Tancredi Biondi-Santi, who had inherited the property when her father passed away. Sergio’s wife, Donatella Monforte, runs the estate today and Vittorio Fiore makes the wines, including this riserva from a 2.5-acre parcel of vines planted in 1976. Aged for four years in large Slavonian casks, it showcases the best side of traditional Brunello, with concentrated cherry flavors layered in notes of dark chocolate, charred meat, roasted mushroom and pipe tobacco. Lively black spices draw the flavors into a long, energetic finish.

Discover Sangiovese Wines

Sangiovese is a blue-black grape varietal used mainly for red wine production. It's long been associated with Italy, particularly Tuscany, where the grape is said to have originated. Sangiovese is a confusing grape variety since there are many clones and sub-types that are occasionally referred to by its generic name. It is the predominant variety in a number of Italian wines, which are typically labeled with the DOCG designation. This type is utilized in many red wine mixes, particularly Chianti, in terms of wine styles.

While Sangiovese is widely cultivated in Italy, it is produced in considerably lesser quantities in other old world European nations.

Sangiovese, on the other hand, has been discovered to thrive in certain new world settings, notably Argentina, Texas, and California, where it thrives in the climate and limestone composition of its individual terroirs. Limestone, in particular, seems to accentuate the wine's distinct mineral and earthy character.
