"The 206 Brunello di Montalcino from Antonluca displays fresh, inviting aromas of red berries and dried cherries that come together with spices, dried herbs, fresh cut florals and hints of licorice. On the palate this is medium-bodied and nicely structured with a gorgeous silky tannins. It continues to impress as or shows wonderful balance, with a lovely touch of acidity leading up to the sleek finish. This is drinking beautifully now and should become even more compelling with some bottle age."

A very pretty 2016 with clarity and brightness, offering cherries, berries and some sliced oranges. It’s medium-bodied with sleek, polished tannins. From organically grown grapes. Vegan. Drink now or hold.
The 2016 vintage in Tuscany was described as a "farmer's vintage", which is to say that the conditions in Montalcino were ideal but vintners also had to spend time working in the vineyards to really get a feel for what was happening.
Successful estates did just that, and what resulted was a set of wines so incredible that 2016 was heralded as the best vintage of our lifetimes!
A perfect example is the outstanding 2016 Antonluca Brunello di Montalcino that earned massive critical acclaim!
