Tenute Silvio Nardi’s classic Brunello is a blend of the finest grapes from the Manachiara and Casale del Bosco estates. Silvio Nardi follows the strict DOCG laws required of a classified Brunello di Montalcino. Yield is limited; only the top 70% of the grapes is used to make the wine. The fruit is carefully handpicked and sorted. Fermentation and maceration takes at least 24 days (varies with parcel) at controlled temperature of less than 86°F. Aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barriques (Allier) before 18 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Bottle aged at least 12 months before release.


91 Points: "A fruity, juicy red with dried-berry, strawberry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full body with round, velvety tannins. Flavorful finish. The overripe character is a little dominating but it shows freshness. Drink now." - James Suckling


2011 experienced a fluctuating trend passing from a precocious clear budding ( in advance of three weeks ) to a slower period of maturity at the beginning of summer due to persistently low day-night temperatures. Then again to a new acceleration from the second half of August to a forced harvest two weeks in advance. It was not possible to delay harvest date given the high alcohol level. Wines of this vintage are very smooth and juicy, well concentrated and full-bodied.


This deep, ruby-red wine has intense, complex aromas of red fruits and spices, with toasty oak notes. The wine shows a silky texture, great finesse and profound flavors, framed by noble, velvety tannins. Though impressive now, this wine will benefit from aging.


Pair with thick porterhouse steak or rich fish such as sturgeon or grouper.
