Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby to garnet-red in colour. In the mouth, pleasantly dry, warm, full and persistent with consistent tannins. This is a wine benefits further ageing, during which time it will become more rounded. Unfiltered, so may produce a slight sediment.

Critical Acclaim

JS 96
James Suckling
A plush, fruity red with aromas and flavors of cherries, chocolate, vanilla bean and coffee. It’s full-bodied and round-textured with plenty of fruit and intensity. Needs time to soften. Try after 2022.

Querce Bettina, Italy
The name Querce Bettina comes from a local legend dating back to the late 19th Century tale of a kind old lady who sat under an imposing oak tree (Querce) spinning wool and telling eccentric stories of witches and wizards to young shepherds that passed by. The lady’s name was Bettina, she was elusive and nobody knew where she lived or came from; she just used to appear and disappear at will leaving a wake of mystery behind her. Everybody used to say they had met Bettina at least once, but if asked where exactly, they would say ‘oh, you know, near Querce Bettina.’ Husband and wife team Sandra Barenghi and Roberto Moretti, who regularly went to Montalcino on holiday, bought the 29ha estate in 1990 and following years of research into the terrain they planted 2.4ha of Sangiovese in 1999. All wine growing and making is done by hand by Sandra and Roberto with a non-interventionist approach. Agronomist Lucio Maruotti oversees the vineyard. Enologist Paolo Caciorgna oversees winemaking. Frederico Brachino is the viticulturist and cellar master

Montalcino Wine

Tuscany, Italy

View all products

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.

Among Italy's elite red grape varieties, Sangiovese has the perfect intersection of bright red fruit and savory earthiness and is responsible for the best red wines of Tuscany. While it is best known as the chief component of Chianti, it is also the main grape in Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and reaches the height of its power and intensity in the complex, long-lived Brunello di Montalcino. Somm Secret—Sangiovese doubles under the alias, Nielluccio, on the French island of Corsica where it produces distinctly floral and refreshing reds and rosés.
