Valdicava:
Here in Montalcino the opulence of the Sangiovese grape, more than any other place in Tuscany, has lead to a darker, deeper, and more concentrated wine. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata", the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes ...

Here in Montalcino the opulence of the Sangiovese grape, more than any other place in Tuscany, has lead to a darker, deeper, and more concentrated wine. At our precise latitude of 43 degrees, the warmth of the nearby Tirrean Sea, the protective barrier of the "Monte Amiata", the coolness of the wooded areas, the breeze and moderate rainfall all coincide to facilitate the growth of these grapes to fragrant, full maturity. VALDICAVA is located in the Montosoli area which is famous in Montalcino for creating wines with great balance of body and aromas. We pay the utmost attention towards maintaining the individual characteristics of our wines in order to exalt the spirit of the place, the 'genius loci' of our estate. Read less

An impressively structured wine. Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of violets. Full body with velvety and rich tannins. Very tannic and powerful yet the tannins are polished and pretty. Layers of everything here. Give this another three to four years before opening. James Suckling.

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is another super-finessed wine. Subtle floral notes meld into expressive red berries in a sumptuous Brunello that captures the essence of the vintage. The style is rich and deeply textured but the 2007 as outstanding as it is needs at least a few more years in bottle. Once again finesse rules the day. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. - Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A vibrant taut style delivering aromas and flavors of cherry raspberry spice and mineral tightly wound around a core of steely acidity and dense tannins. Well-proportioned and set for a long evolution this version is very fresh and long. Best from 2016 through 2035.

Even though this will not be on the market until March, it shows such amazing structure of firm tannins that are super polished and rich. It's full-bodied with an incredible richness, intensity, and energy. There's such purity and precision to this w... James Suckling.

I tasted this about a year ago at the winery and I was blown away. This time I tasted it in a blind tasting in Tuscany and it stood above the rest. Amazing aromas of blueberries and flowers, with black truffles and pie. Foie gras, mushrooms and white... James Suckling.

The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano is a huge towering wine. Waves of vibrant intensely perfumed fruit hit the palate backed up by the firm broad tannins of the vintage. Violets spices new leather and licorice develop in the glass yet the 2006 remains painfully young and stubborn. Clean mineral notes frame a blast of dark cherries plums and camphor on the palate-staining finish. Readers will need to be especially patient but the 2006 Madonna del Piano is stacking up to be one of the all-time greats from proprietor Vincenzo Abbruzzese. I followed the wine over the course of two days during which it continued to improve while seeming to gain freshness and structure. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. --- Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
