Tasting Notes

'Crushed black cherries, a dusting of sweet spice, cedar, mocha and cloves blend to create the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino’s fruit-forward and seductive bouquet. Its textures are like pure silk, cast across a medium-bodied frame and ushering in a youthfully dense display of red and black berries. Symmetry is maintained with fine-grained tannins offset by juicy acids, as inner purple florals and a hint of dried citrus lingers. While showing a bit of its oak influence, nothing is out of place in this young and beautifully balanced Brunello from Cupano.' Ian D'Agata, Vinous 

More Info

If you were a grape, this would be where you went on your holidays.  At Cupano, perched on a beautiful ridge near Camigliano that slopes down to the Ombrone river, they harvest everything by hand and use a horse and plough to tend the soil. One of the things that demonstrates the great attention to detail shown by Cupano is that owner & winemaker, Lionel Cousin, walks through his vineyard every day removing individual berries with a pair of nail scissors. It is winemaking on a miniaturist scale. Compare that to the infamous story about one of Australia's huge wineries, where the double-width mechanical harvesters went through the vineyards with such indiscriminate disregard that when they went to press the grapes, one of the workers found a bicycle in the crusher.
