The charming family-run estate of Croce di Mezzo finds itself hidden between Biondi Santi and Fattoria dei Barbi, two of Montalcino’s most famous vineyards for exquisite Brunello. Here at Croce di Mezzo, the soils are the same, the vineyards compositions are the same, the vineyard and harvest regimens are the same, the only thing that isn’t is the name, and for this, you’re able to score a fantastic value on a brilliantly crafted Brunello.
Vinous says its, "well balanced and very perfumed, this politely styled Brunello is full of early appeal and is already delicious to drink now.” 92pts
We couldn’t agree more. Beautifully aromatic in the glass with notes of rose petals, dried and fresh cherries, and cigar box. The palate expresses similar flavors with hints of earth and sour cherries, but the fruit is fully enhanced and the oak influence is less intense (especially with air).
This isn’t a wine you’ll want to drag your feet on. A brilliant vintage, 92pts, 53% off! Our allotment is but small and meager and certainly won’t last long.
