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. Fior di Meliloto 2015: A lustrous ruby garnet hue, unveiling deep notes of dark cherries and cranberries, interlaced with delicate spices. It presents a robust start, boasts rich fruit concentration, and finishes with a youthful elegance.

Robert Parker

The folks at the Corte Pavone property do a masterful job of teasing out both the elegance and power that is natural to aged Sangiovese. The Loacker Schwarhof 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Corte Pavone Fior di Meliloto is dark, saturated and savory in character. The Campo Marzio expression has more dark fruit, whereas this wine (with a similarly slim release of 1,997 bottles) shows some charred meat, campfire ash and cedar wood. You will also find the sort of dark and plummy fruit you should expect of this mighty Tuscan grape. Delicate mineral renderings appear on the smooth and velvety finish.

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.
