James Suckling

A nutty and fruity character to this young Brunello. Full body, with full, chewy tannins and a ripe fruit, chocolate and spice undertone.

Robert Parker

The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is the most polished, refined wine I have ever tasted from Loacker. Ripe, silky tannins support a core of expressive dark red fruit in this gracious, mid-weight wine. Floral notes add lift on the finish. Sweet, succulent and expressive, the 2008 should drink well for the next handful of years.

Close your eyes, then open them to the enchanting panorama of Tuscan, where a grand entrance gate beckons, a cypress avenue stretches endlessly, and the picturesque town of Montalcino unfolds before you Hayo Loacker's Tenuta Corte Pavone,. It's an unforgettable experience. Here, wine is not just tasted but felt, smelled, and seen in its most splendid form. The gates of Corte Pavone are open to you almost anytime. The wines from Corte Pavone in Montalcino are distinctive, elegant, and brimming with character. They predominantly showcase one grape variety: Sangiovese, 100%. Through meticulous measurements with advanced infrared sensors throughout Corte Pavone, Hayo has crafted a dynamic micro-parceling into distinct growth zones, defining seven unique layers of Brunello, known as the "7 DYNAMIC BRUNELLO CRUS." These crus are dynamic because the grape selection within each vineyard is finely tuned at harvest, guided by new measurements tailored to the vintage.
