Cordella Brunello Di Montalcino 2016
COLLECTORS! The Brunello savvy, point-chasing cognoscenti, and just plain old regular folk like you and me --- 95 POINT, off-the-chain delicious Brunello from 2016 (greatest vintage in recent history!!) is quickly becoming as valuable as Bitcoin (I know, I know, go ahead, send your emails), white truffles and vinyl copies of Nelly’s “Nellyville”. BUT -- not today! You’ve entered the Last Bottle twilight zone -- but ya gotta click hella-quick!
WHEW! Seriously! Cordella is a brand we started working with last year and WOW! They are quickly becoming rockstars. As noted, 2016. It’s just spectacular. We do wish we had more, but...early bird, worm, and all that. So, you say, quit yapping and tell us how it tastes? Yes. Like satiny Sangiovese magic is what it is, with that cool tangerine-like citrus note we PINE FOR in Brunello, fresh and complex, a cornucopia of berries and exotic spices, licorice, purple flowers, good Swiss dark cocoa...man, just killer-diller and a wine that will age for a decade or so.
**Oh! Did we mention 95 points and shockingly less than the rest of the world? We did?**
Cordella started in 1998 as a strictly vineyard business, selling grapes to top producers. As often happens in the wine world, younger daughter Maddalena Cordella wanted to make wine, and the rest is history. The estate is south-east from Montalcino hill towards the village of Torrenieri, farmed and produced organically.
I’m drinking a glass right now and it is filling my office with, like...lavender or something, or a tangerine rolled in lavender flowers. SO good. While it lasts!!

“Gently perfumed with lavender, cedar and ripe blackberries. It's full-bodied and smooth with ripe tannins. Just the right amount of chewiness. Lovely chocolate and hazelnut notes on the finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink after 2024.”
Cordella wines highlight the delicate aromas and flavors of which Sangiovese Grosso is capable. Spring cherry blossoms and light pepper aromas reveal sweet, tangy summer cherry flavors and silky tannins.
