About the Wine

You are not going to want to miss out on this extremely small production wine. The Cordella estate is run by Maddalena Cordella, who although has been growing grapes on-site since 1998, started producing her own wine in 2006. Currently, the house is only producing wine from just over 20 acres. The unique soils at her estate, allow Maddalena to produce wines with great depth and energy. Cordelia's small production wines are loved by James Suckling along with the lucky few capable of obtaining these powerful wines. Don't miss this opportunity.

“It’s Montalcino’s Time to Shine. If I had to think of one way to universally describe the majority of wines from the 2016 vintage, I would offer that they are like a well-muscled black stallion in its prime. They are dark yet radiant, expressive, nearly explosive at times, yet pure, poised and structured.” ~Eric Guido, Vinous Media

Maddelena produces her wine with an eye towards the future. The winery uses water conservation techniques and all of her grapes are grown organically. With just 20 acres of production area, you can rest assured that every vine is given individual care and attention. The entire vineyard is tended to by hand, and during harvest, only the best bunches are selected to be brought into the winery. Once in the winery, only native yeasts are used for fermentation.

2016 was not only a great year for wine throughout the whole of Europe but is being called the best vintage ever for Brunello di Montalcino! Now is the time to stock up on 2016 Brunello; these wines will only get more valuable as they continue to age into the sensational wines we know they're going to be! Think of this opportunity as an IPO, this is your chance to make a sure-fire investment in a wine that will continue to appreciate for the next 25 to 30 years! In 1997, Amazon sold its first shares for $18. Today, a single share of Amazon trades for over $2000. This is your Amazon, don't let this opportunity pass you by.

Aging: This wine spends 24 months in Slovenian Oak barrels

Tasting Notes: Elegant, silky, and refined – this Baby Brunello swirls in an exotic mixture of raspberries, cherries, and baking spice, all touched with a bit of dustiness. Juicy acidity and silken-smooth tannins in the mouth make this a real pleasure to drink.

Reviews

Gently perfumed with lavender, cedar, and ripe blackberries. It's full-bodied and smooth with ripe tannins. Just the right amount of chewiness. Lovely chocolate and hazelnut notes on the finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink after 2024. ~95 James Suckling
