My top three

Michael Gar­ner


Col d’Or­cia Big can be beau­ti­ful, as this wine from about 100ha of or­gan­i­cally farmed vine­yard to the south­west of Mon­tal­cino so ably demon­strates. Heady aro­mas, sup­ple tan­nins. Ap­proach­able soon but will keep. 96 Drink 2020-2029

La Cer­baiola, Salvioni A peren­nial favourite. Very tra­di­tional meth­ods pro­duce tiny quan­ti­ties of just two wines: Rosso and Brunello di Mon­tal­cino. This has fab­u­lous aro­mas and beau­ti­ful bal­ance: for me the wine of the tast­ing. 96 Drink 2021-2028

Collemat­toni Rarely the most pol­ished Brunello of the denom­i­na­tion, nonethe­less its un­pre­ten­tious and pleas­antly rus­tic style is of­ten a breath of fresh air. Ripe and pow­er­ful, this is great value for money. 93 Drink 2021-2032
