Estate Notes

Martinozzi's 2009 Brunello is the first Brunello made here entirely under the supervision of Paolo Caciorgna.

Martinozzi's Brunello is getting better with each vintage under the expert supervision of Paolo Caciorgna and the dedication of Cesare Castelli’s grandson, Federico, maintaining a traditional style with modern focus.

Brunello is made solely from a Sangiovese clone, Sangiovese Grosso (aka Brunello or the little dark one because of the brown colouring of its skin). Brunello wines are typically big and powerful with great structure and powerful tannins that ensure longevity in bottle.

Martinozzi is a rising star of this famous style, and is relatively great value-for-money in today’s terms. The ancient farm of Castelli Martinozzi sits in the astonishingly beautiful Tuscan hillside. Its mixture of vines, olive groves and woods provide an ideal microclimate, which guarantees good quality wine, even in trickier years.

Reviews

Magical spice incipient incense and refined red fruits and kirsch with floral scents of rose and carnation. Focused pure fruit on the front palate, very floral; elegant spice and fruit centre with deep mineral base; lightly kirschy and floral spice in the development; lovely purity, length and breadth in the finish.
