Size750MLVintage2007SKU16144Layers of dark red cherries, flowers, mint, licorice and tobacco emerge from the glass in this large-scaled, deeply expressive wine.

Size750MLVintage2008SKU17480Sweet, rich, lush and layered, yet also remarkably light on its feet, the 2008 Brunello di Montalcino dazzles from start to finish.

Size750MLVintage2006SKU18024The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Manachiara shows a touch more richness, density and fragrance than the normal bottling, along with a more open, warm yet understated personality.
