£34 H2Vin, Le Pont de la Tour This small win­ery of 15ha ded­i­cates only 5ha to the pro­duc­tion of Brunello di Mon­tal­cino. Brunelli es­tate is lo­cated in the south­west­ern sec­tion of the de­nom­i­nazione at an al­ti­tude of 300m. Pro­duc­tion is lim­ited to 10,000 bot­tles, and the wine spends 36 months partly in Slavo­nian oak bar­rels and in French oak bar­riques.

BB Medium-bod­ied and ex­pres­sive, with aro­mas of min­eral and flo­ral-infused red fruit lead­ing to a squeaky-clean palate boast­ing lay­ered yet soft tan­nins, and a long, fruit-driven fin­ish.

MG Bright, fleshy fruit aro­mas along with notes of woodsmoke and black pep­per. Big, ripe and juicy palate, with smoky and spicy fruit il­lu­mi­nated by im­pres­sively fresh acid­ity, mo­bil­is­ing to a su­perbly long fin­ish.

SH A com­plex, leath­ery, musky nose wel­comes juicy, dark cherry fruit on the palate, with bright acid­ity adding live­li­ness and fresh­ness on a pro­tracted fin­ish.
