Tasting Notes

"Lovely aromatics, sexy and spicy, plenty of spice cupboard, herbs and flowers. Smell the argileux and the small rocks littering the vineyards. Tells a story of place so succinctly and what's coming over the next few years. Sweet acids balance and foil drying tannins for classically trained and executed Rosso. Drink 2020-2024.l"

The Producer

La Mannella

For decades, the Cortonesi family has owned and passionately cultivated the La Mannella farm in Montalcino, focusing on producing exceptional Brunello di Montalcino. They skillfully create the Rosso di Montalcino using the younger Brunello grapes. The combination of favourable geography, rocky soils, and innovative winemaking results in some of the region's most profound and refined Brunello wines.

Since the 1970s, the Cortonesi family has been involved in winemaking. Initially, their wines were crafted for the enjoyment of family, friends, and neighbors. However, by 1985, Cortonesi had garnered enough recognition within their community to start offering their wines commercially. Today, Cortonesi remains a family-run business committed to tradition while integrating modern technologies to enhance the quality of their production.

Devotees of Sangiovese actively seek out 'La Mannella,' a series of wines exclusively sourced from Cortonesi's private vineyard. Spanning 56 hectares, with eight dedicated to producing some of the world's most sought-after and age-worthy Brunello di Montalcino, this farm stands as a testament to the family's enduring commitment to excellence.
