‘Rennina’ Brunello di Montalcino 1997, Pieve Santa Restituta (Gaja), Italy
Sangiovese at its best
This beautiful, garnet-colored Brunello has evolved massively over its 21 years. A classic aged Brunello doesn’t come along every year. It happens only during a perfect ripening season and this 1997 from producer Pieve Santa Restituta is a classic. In our opinion no truer expression of Sangiovese exists.
