2016 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Soccorso, Tiezzi, Tuscany

The Vigna Soccorso is a single vineyard Brunello, from one of the most prized sites in the appellation. It’s powerful and intense, with notes of ripe morello cherries, blood orange, and a herbal lift. The palate is intense, with concentrated fruit and enveloping tannins. This will need time, but when it does, it will be a remarkable wine for the price. Not to be missed in 2016.

Estate Tiezzi

A winemaking consultant by trade, there’s little in Montalcino that Enzo Tiezzi hasn’t done. He’s been winemaker at countless estates, but finally bought his own estate in the 1980s. Vigna Soccorso is the vineyard that surrounds the estate’s buildings, in the shadow of Montalcino’s town walls. It holds a unique place in the history of Brunello: it was a wine from here that won some of Brunello di Montalcino’s first international plaudits in trade fairs in Rome, Paris, and Marseille in 1870s.
