More About This Wine
Founded in the early 1700s, Lisini's sprawling estate is ringed by some of the most rustic terrain in Tuscany. Filippo Paoletti handles the everyday winemaking activities here, helping the estate produce a consistently solid, traditional Brunello, made from the estate's oldest vines, some of which have reached 70.

($38) Bright, full red. Perfumed, complex nose is perfectly typical of sangiovese from the warmer S. Angelo in Colle subzone of Montalcino: violet, ripe red cherry, raspberry syrup, marjoram, bay leaf and a whiff of heat from the hot vintage. Then weighty yet fresh in the mouth, showing pure flavors of redcurrant and red cherry, with a touch of gaminess emerging with air. Displays wonderfully satiny yet serious tannins and seductive floral and flinty tones on the long, precise finish. This put on considerable weight in the glass. To my taste, this is one of the top Rossos of the vintage.
