      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2014

      Dark ruby, scent of sour cherries, wild berries and smoke. In the taste a fruity freshness, velvety tannin and fine spice. Clean and harmonious to the straight aftertaste. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Palish crimson. Spicy, sweet fruit on the nose. Soft fruit with grip on the palate. Long and delicious." Jancis Robinson

      "Rose, violet, wild berry and a whiff of forest floor lead the nose on this young, approachable red. The bright, savory palate offers morello cherry, raspberry and aromatic herb set against firm acidity and polished tannins. A blast of orange zest closes the finish." Wine Enthusiast

      Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2017

      Beautiful Rosso with nuanced Bouquet after dark cherries, berries and spices, which sets its noble origin beautifully in scene. On the palate with fresh fruit, pleasing structure and good length. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Great cherry fruit concentration, layered with notes of smoke and peach peel. A charming Rosso with a lovely soft texture." Decanter

      "The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino is rich, racy and exuberant. There is not a whole lot of subtlety here, as the ripeness of the vintage is very much front and center. Even so, the 2017 offers terrific freshness and plenty of body. It is a rare 2017 Rosso that will benefit from bottle age. A bit of aromatic complexity rounds things out. This is an absolutely joyous Rosso." Vinous

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2014

      Text follows. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny ruby garnet. Opened with slightly smoky earthy notes, then fine raspberry fruit, some cardamom. Good density at the base, then unfolds with quite bulky tannin, still drying in the final." Falstaff

      "Concentrated ruby with orange tinges.  Ripe cherry nose that is gentle, but concentrated. Hints of herb liqueur. Quite open-knit palate that is concentrated and inviting. Succulent finish with fine tannins. Not a wine for long ageing but beautiful as it is." Jancis Robinson

      "This has aromas of ripe darker cherries and plums with violets and cedar, leading to a supple core of bright cherries that arrive in juicy and quite bold style." James Suckling

      "Rose, graphite, Mediterranean herb and underbrush aromas mingle with a whiff of wet wool. On the palate, taut tannins and racy acidity frame juicy Marasca cherry, orange zest, culinary spice and an earthy hint of game." Wine Enthusiast

      "Located near Sant'Angelo in Colle, Lisini's 24ha of vines surround the winery at 300-400 metres above sea level. While they usually harvest during the third week of September, in 2014 picking started mid-October. Discreet yet well-defined aromas of sage, red cherry, blood orange peel and wet earth gradually unfold on the nose. The palate is just as captivating, offering brightness, purity and polish with ripe, fine-boned tannins and juicy acidity. This is all finesse. A standout for the vintage." Decanter

      Lisinis Brunello 2012 is a powerful wine in dark ruby with a complex aroma of ripe fruits and spicy notes. On the palate wide and harmonious, silky tannin, nice acidity, long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Spicy-fruity bouquet, notes of raspberry and wild rose hip, black pepper and herbs; in the mouth powerful, long finishes with notes of wild berries and balsamic components. Excellent workmanship." Vinum

      "This is round, exuding black cherry and blackberry flavors, allied to a pliable profile. The acidity and tannins emerge on the finish, where everything falls into place. Fine freshness, tobacco and mineral details emerge in the end." Wine Spectator

      "At once powerful and graceful, this delivers alluring aromas and flavors of ripe black cherry, raspberry compote, grilled herb, licorice and an intriguing tarry note. Fresh acidity and firm, velvety tannins provide balance and structure, while a hint of pipe tobacco closes the lingering finish." Wine Enthusiast

      "Healthy mid ruby. Fine, perfumed and focused nose with a little lift. Quite pure, concentrated and embryonic fruit on the palate. Great balance and style and with wonderful bite and length." Jancis Robinson

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      2013 is also a top year for Lisini: intense ruby, very fine elegant bouquet of cloves and much dark cherry. On the palate with beautiful elegance, compact, draws, fine-grained tannin and juicy long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lisini was one of the founding members of the Brunello consorzio, bottling its first vintage the same year the denomination was created. Located in the warm southern reaches of Sant'Angelo in Colle, the estates wines are typically large in size as well as personality. This is pulled off with balance here, showing plenty of black cherry, iron, leather and warm sweet spice notes which expand through the wine. The imposing tannins could do with some time." Decanter

      "Mid to deep ruby. Exotic spice and cherry nose with nutty (oak?) notes and, with aeration, a hint of leather. A little wild even. Lifted cherry with exotic spice hints on the palate. Racy and light yet precise with lots of chewy tannins. Burgundian, more than anything." Jancis Robinson

      "Lisini's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a delightful appearance that sees shades of garnet and dark ruby blend into one. The bouquet is sprightly and buoyant, thanks to a pretty ensemble of wild berry, licorice and grilled herb aromas. Those are mixed with heavier background tones of spice and leather. There is also a noticeable floral note of wild rose and dried jasmine. This is a silky and smooth Brunello with a hint of fresh acidity on the close." Robert Parker

      "Fruity aromas of wild red berry align with earthy notes of forest floor, new leather and fragrant purple flower. The smooth ripe palate offers juicy Morello cherry, star anise, orange zest and an earthy hint of game. It's savory and loaded with personality." Wine Enthusiast

      "Exuding cherry, strawberry and floral flavors tinged with iron, earth and spice notes, this ripe red is elegant in profile, tightly wound and deftly balanced, ending with a kick of fruit, spice and mineral elements." Wine Spectator

      Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG 2013

      Complex, intensely spicy aromas, dark forest berries, notes of tobacco and leather in the clear bouquet, complex and well balanced the taste until the pleasantly warm finish. A Brunello Riserva as elegant and classic as a textbook. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep ruby with orange tinges. Deep and concentrated cherry nose. Lots of concentrated marasca cherry on the palate, but still very much contained. Supple finish with finely built, long-lasting tannins. Ready now, but can age too." Jancis Robinson

      "If Montosoli is Montalcino's great cru of the north, then the area of Sesta between Castelnuovo dell'Abate and Sant’Angelo in Colle is its southern counterpart. This is where Lisini's vineyards are located. The Riserva is crafted from the finest bunches throughout their holdings, so the selection depends on vintage conditions. A true Riserva, this will take time to fully reveal its charms and has a long life ahead. The palate is compact yet beautifully fluid in texture, with an underlying freshness and tanginess of acidity. Red cherry, citrus blossom and fragrant incense flavours slowly come into focus while minerality drives the whole." Decanter

      "Though lean in profile, this red features plenty of ripe strawberry, cherry, rose and sweet spice aromas and flavors. Shows tremendous energy, along with a well-integrated structure and a mouthwatering aftertaste." Wine Spectator

High aromatic complexity and multi-layered nuances in the bouquet, medium-weight on the palate with noticeable depth and clear fruit. Red cherries, sweet tobacco, wild herbs, flowers and cedar wood. Wonderfully long in the reverberation with the prospect of a further beautiful development. SUPERIORE.DE

Red cherries, sweet tobacco, wild herbs, flowers and cedar wood. Wonderfully long in the reverberation with the prospect of a further beautiful development. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Deep ruby. Captivating, deep nose of cherry fruit with a layer of minerals and hints of oatmeal. Generous, yet youthful palate and gorgeously balanced by bags of polished tannins and ripe acidity. Embryonic and already spectacular." Jancis Robinson

      "A sleek, elegant style, this displays cherry, currant, iron and tobacco aromas and flavors. Firm and taut, with a long, detailed finish." Wine Spectator

      "Vivid, full red. Cool notes of watercress and spearmint complement fresh red cherry and crunchy chocolate-covered redcurrants. Rich, discreetly sweet and very suave, but with juicy brightness highlighting excellent cut and clarity of its red fruit and floral flavors. The finish refreshes in its lingering violet perfume. A lovely Brunello that is surprisingly ready to drink for a Riserva." Vinous

      "Ugolaia is a 1.7ha southwest-facing plot that looks out toward the sea, where temperature swings between day and night are significant. Here, the estate's oldest vines grow on red irony soil. This wine is not produced every vintage, but it clearly made sense in 2013 when neither Lisini's Riserva nor the regular Brunello suffered, and the Ugolaia demonstrated why it's a special site. It's still very backward but all is in place in this deftly sculpted Brunello. Nuances of wild cherry, lavender, moist soil and balsamic herbs emerge little by little. The tannins are assertive but fully ripe and sophisticated, demonstrating the wine's breed. This is concentrated yet vibrant, with appetising saline and iron notes resonating on the long finish."

    About the winemakers
    Lisini
    Tuscany | Montalcino
    Lisini

    Lisini Winery has been active in viticulture for generations. Signora Elina Lisini and her son Lorenzo Lisini brought their many years of experience to the – who has long since assumed responsibility for the business – and led to the worldwide fame of the traditional good. The Santorini farm is dedicated to agriculture.'Angelo in Colle, 154 hectares of vineyards since the 16th century. The cultivation of grapes began nine years before the outbreak of the Second World War, and the production of top-quality products only began in the 1960s.

    The approximately 18 hectares of vineyards at altitudes of up to 350 meters are very promising. They are located in Sesta, south of Montalcino, in a privileged position and are mainly destined for Brunello. For Rosso and Sant'Antimo products were selected only a few plots. Late harvesting, strict selection, the selection of only fully ripe grapes and low yields - these are some of the most important characteristics of the family philosophy.

    Some of the vines of the Lisini winery are very old. A parcel that was spared from the phylloxera plague a hundred years ago and is currently undergoing a rejuvenation treatment by selecting the best vines from the old stock and multiplying them on a massive scale is virtually unique. The loose and deep soils of the vineyards are rich in skeletal parts. A deep clay layer is responsible for ensuring that the roots of the vines receive sufficient fluid. Due to the good drainage, the plants are of great concentration and impressive elegance.

    The winery's cellar now has a temperature control system. The mostly larger barrels intended for the ageing of the wines are not only used carefully, but are also replaced more frequently than in the past. Lisini owes the breakthrough to the top, even to the absolute top, to the consulting star oenologist Dr. Franco Bernabei, who occupies an exceptional position in Tuscany. It is therefore no surprise that the "Brunello di Montalcino Ugolaia" from the wine guide Gambero Grosso very often with "Three glasses" has been awarded. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Lisini is a first class traditional estate, as the long vertical proves, a confirmation also for the extreme longevity of the wines with very precise style and high recognition value."Gambero Rosso
