Brunello di Montalcino is one of Italy’s finest wines, famed for its complex flavors and ability to age. High demand has seen prices skyrocket in recent years, making this boutique find even more special. Not only does Castello Giulio 2016 boast 95 points from Tuscan expert James Suckling, it’s also from Tavernelle—a premium subzone of Montalcino that’s prized for its richer, fuller reds.

But that’s not all…
Castello Giulio is from a very special place. The 14th century estate is literally a stone’s throw from ultra-premium producers Poggio Antico, Caprili and Soldera (whose 2016 release will likely cost $600 a bottle).

And we’ll let you in on a little secret…
ALL of those famous vineyards once belonged to Castello Giulio. Today, the family retain only their best plots (immediately surrounding the ancient villa) and have produced an exceptional 2016.

Aged for 36-months in fine oak botti, this is “a firm and silky red with plum and berry aromas and flavors. A hint of chocolate powder. Medium to full body. Super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Such polish. Best ever from here. 95 points” (Suckling).
