Brunello 2016 M to Z

View from Montalcino at dawn, Janaury 2020

The second half of the 222 tasting notes that accompany Walter's Brunello 2016 – outstanding, in parts and Brunello 2016 – the stars, and why. See also Brunello 2016 A to L. Walter took this picture of morning mist from Montalcino while tasting the 2015s there in January 2020.

Just a reminder of what Walter wrote yesterday:

While 2016 has not delivered a vintage as consistent as the legendary 2010, the following producers are truly outstanding in 2016. These represent the Montalcino elite:

Canalicchio di Sopra
Casanova di Neri
Casa Raia
Conti Costanti
