Tasting Notes

Discover the '7 Dynamic Brunello Crus.' A decade ago, Hayo Loacker's passion led him on a journey akin to Burgundy's vineyard classification at Corte Pavone, Montalcino. Through precise infrared sensing and dynamic micro-parcelling, seven unique Brunello vineyards emerged. Each harvest season, new measurements refine grape selection, optimizing the individuality of each vineyard. The 'Amenone al Sole Riserva 2015' boasts ruby hues, rich morello cherry scents, and a powerful yet elegant almond finish. Truly, the aristocrat of wines."

Reviews and Accolades

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

Robert Parker

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Corte Pavone Anemone al Sole offers a ripe and concentrated bouquet laced with black cherry, blackberry, prune, spice, leather and tar. There is oak spice, plenty of dark fruit and some of the balsam herb intensity you often find in Brunello, especially from a sunny vintage such as this. The tannins are soft and plump, and the wine shows rich density over its long, velvety finish.

James Suckling

Very rich fruit character to this with lots of crushed black fruit, together with hints of dark chocolate and peppery notes. Full-bodied with fine and firm tannins, coated with lots of flavor. Bitter-chocolate finish. From organically grown grapes. Not overly complex, but well structured and delicious. Drinkable now, but better from 2023.
