About

95

"Extremely fresh and linear style to this with dark fruits of cherry and berry. Some flower and wood. Full body, fine and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Very structured. Better than 2012. Best ever? Drink in 2021."

93 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Luminous dark red. Floral, fragrant coffee and cocoa notes complement red berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Clean, fresh and pure on the palate, this smooth, medium-bodied, suave Brunello finishes long and perfumed. Its refined personality reflects the northeastern quadrant of Montalcino where the grapes grow, and the Comunali area in particular, one of Montalcino’s highest-quality and most interesting subzones. Palazzo is an estate that many in Montalcino say is worth watching and I have to say I agree: the wines appear to be improving year after year and the two wines I tasted this year were among the stars of my Montalcino tasting this year."

"Aromas of wild berry, forest floor and a whiff of thyme lift out of the glass. The concentrated palate offers dried black cherry, chewing tobacco and star anise alongside taut, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2023–2030. -KO"

Product Description:

"Brunello is Montalcino’s signature wine, made entirely from Sangiovese grapes (Brunello is the local, but unofficial, name for Sangiovese).

Palazzo is a traditionally-made Brunello (large oak only) from the South-Eastern part of the production area. It has an intense ruby red color, which tends towards garnet with age. Scented, high-toned aromas of red berries, sweet spices and flowers, with a note of candied red cherry emerging with air. Fine-grained and floral, offering excellent energy and lift in the mouth, and attractive inner-mouth perfume to its red berry flavors. Finishes clean and persistent, with smooth tannins." - Importer
