Description

A broad, rich style, with dense tannins underneath the cherry, plum, leather and earth notes. Balanced, in a beefy way, with the tannins and earth accents playing out on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2028.- WS89

Charred earth, underbrush, cured meat and toasted hazelnut aromas lift out of the glass. The robust palate is almost overripe, offering dried black cherry, grilled sage, tobacco and a hint of game alongside tightly packed tannins that clench the finish. Drink 2019–2025. - WE89

This wine shows a savory bouquet with smokey notes of burnt chestnut or scorched earth. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is an oak-driven expression of Sangiovese that also shows ample intensity as far as its fleshy and fruity side is concerned. Ultimately, the wine reaches good balance and a deep sense of plushness and richness. - WE88

The Winery

Cosimo Loia's estate is situated on the eastern slopes of the hills outside Montalcino. The entire property covers an area of approximately 15 hectares (37 acres) at an altitude of 310 meters (about 1,000 feet). Originally from Benevento (in Campania), Cosimo came to "Brunello land" when he married a woman from Montalcino. He fell in love with this part of Tuscany as well, and during the 1980s began to dedicate himself to wine. Palazzo's vineyards encompass 5 hectares (12 acres) and are located next to fine producers like Cerbaiona and Salvioni. There have been major structural changes in the estate over the past few years: the arrival of consulting enologist Fabrizio Ciufoli has raised the quality level, and the production has also benefited from investment that included replacing most of the traditional casks with large Slavonian oak barrels, with a few barriques added for balance. This formula has given new life to the estate, which is now managed by Cosimo's daughter Elia.
