A core of cherry and strawberry highlights this rich and intense red, with accents of flowers and spice flavors. Balanced and long. It remains vibrant and focused on the lingering after taste.

Wine Advocate (92 Points):

“Cortonesi makes a very satisfying Rosso that drinks and performs above its weight class. The 2021 Rosso di Montalcino La Mannella (with 20,000 bottles released) shows a dark garnet color with medium-lean
concentration. There is plenty of dark cherry and fresh fruit at its core. That center is framed by earthy notes
of iris root and chestnut husk. All of those flavors conclude with pretty freshness.”

James Suckling (92 Points):

“Attractive aromas of ripe cherries, dried orange peel, dried flowers and walnuts. Medium-bodied, structured
and polished with fine tannins and juicy acidity. Balanced and even with a lengthy, mineral finish. Drink or hold.”

Brunello di Montalcino of Tuscany has been called “The King of Wines” and this “king” is what Cortonesi specializes in. The Cortonesis established La Mannella in the ‘70s, covering 138 acres in one of the most storied areas of the entire region of Montalcino, but only 19 of those acres are dedicated to producing a world-class Brunello. They started commercially selling their wine in 1985. And today, the wines are in the more-than-capable hands of Tommaso Cortonesi, a third-generation winemaker.

The first vintage of Cortonesi’s Brunello came in 1990, which took advantage of the rocky, well-drained soils of the vineyard site, ensuring a long-aging wine. Modern technological advances, too, go a long way in producing outstanding wine.

Part of the Cortonesi portfolio, the Brunello di Montalcino Il Poggiarelli comes from a Grand Cru single vineyard of a little less than 5 acres located on the south-eastern side of Montalcino. This vibrant, powerful wine has a core of minerality that lifts the bright red fruit notes. That special aromatic signature is followed by dark fruit and balsam herb, firm tannins and fresh acidity.
