Description

The Cortonesi winery is a family-owned winery native of Montalcino. The strong attachment to the territory has always been an essential part of the work of the winery, based not only on the respect of the surrounding environment but also on the will of improving in terms of technical and cultural evolution and not only overcoming the ideas from the past. Today Tommaso, Marco and Giulio continue the winemaking activity in the name of the family tradition, because everything comes from the family and from the strong link of the Cortonesi family with Montalcino.

THE WINE ADVOCATE 94 points - “The Cortonesi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino La Mannella shows dark fruit with dried cherry, blackcurrant and plum. On a second wave of aromas, you encounter softer spice with toasted almond, tilled earth and grilled herb. This is a classic expression of the crisp but sunny 2016 vintage with an open and food-friendly personality. There is a playful touch of sweet cherry on the close. Fruit is sourced from the La Mannella zone, one of the coolest growing areas in the appellation at moderate 350 meters above sea level. Winemaking is traditional, using 30-hectoliter Slavonian oak for three years of slow aging, and this reinforces all those fun berry notes on display in the 25,000-bottle release.”
