Wine Advocate Review
Rated 93
Corte Pavone is a biodynamic and organic estate in Montalcino owned by the Loacker family of northern Italy (of breakfast biscuit fame for those of you who are familiar with the catchy television jingle seen throughout the 1980s and 1990s on Italian television). Their 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Corte Pavone shows a touch of natural rubber that appears before the Sangiovese fruit and the spice expected of a wine released five years after the harvest. Once the wine has had ample time to open, the fruit, spice and balsam tones come into greater focus. I'd suggest this 13,700-bottle release for near or medium-term drinking. Drink 2022-2038.

Wine Tasting Notes
Corte Pavone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG is bright ruby red, in the nose aromas of eucalyptus, liquorice, raspberry and black pepper. Well integrated tannins with a nice acidity. A Brunello with tremendous juiciness. The allrounder with durability!
