Valdicava has for a long time been one of my favorite Tuscan wineries and I am excited to share their superb wines with you. Vincenzo Abbruzzese's philosophy is deeply rooted in the vineyard, located on the northern side of Montalcino, where he focused on the land and vines first. His low yields and meticulous selection remains some of the most severe in Italy and is in large part responsible for the rich, structured, intense Brunellos of Valdicava. What’s often misunderstood is that the elegant textures and dark colors of Vincenzo’s wines are often thought to be the result of an international style or small oak, but that is not the case. The vinification at Valdicava has always remained traditional, aged in cask (not French barrique), allowing the identity of the estate’s terroir and Vincenzo’s vision of ideal Sangiovese fruit to shine through.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eJoin us for the tasting here: \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/us06web.zoom.us\/j\/95183841592?pwd=b2JWMUdPOHVNTnpJOHVSUGh5Yks3dz09\"\u003ehttps:\/\/us06web.zoom.us\/j\/95183841592?pwd=b2JWMUdPOHVNTnpJOHVSUGh5Yks3dz09 \u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThursday's tasting will include, in this order:\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e2019 Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino, $47.99 \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe nose is intense in the 2019 Rosso di Montalcino, pushing forward from the glass with masses of ripe black cherry, sweet spices, tobacco, cedar dust, and dried floral tones.
