"The Cortonesi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino La Mannella comes from a vineyard site located not too far from Montosoli, at the foot of the hill where the town of Montalcino stands tall.

"The Cortonesi 2015 Brunello di Montalcino La Mannella comes from a vineyard site located not too far from Montosoli, at the foot of the hill where the town of Montalcino stands tall. The soils at this site see a mix of clay and flysch. It offers slightly contained aromas at first that open to reveal dark berry fruit, rose petal and crushed stone. This wine remains direct and accessible with a medium-weight approach backed by fine and structured tannins. Some 25,000 bottles were made, and this Brunello hit the market in January 2020."

James Suckling 94
Lots of glazed dark cherries meet with aniseed, licorice, tar and five spice. While the nose is quite decadent, the palate takes a more restrained approach with suave, polished tannins that coat the mouth in a comely, tidy fashion

Tasting Pannel 94
Earthy, berry-tinged nose; smooth and lush with deep blackberry and floral notes; graceful and complex.

Wine Enthusiast 91
Red berry, blue flower, forest floor and menthol aromas meld together on this fullbodied red. Its tightly knit and firmly structured, delivering raspberry compote, cranberry and clove set against assertive, seasoned tannins. Drink 20222027

Decanter 90
La Manella is the name of the Cortonesi family's estate on the northern slopes of the Montalcino hill. Rather than a single vineyard, it comprises a number of plots totalling approximately 5ha. These are blended and bottled separately from its smaller holding in the south of Montalcino. It is already showing a bit of development, though still appealing. The nose emphasises savory leather and dried floral aromas, while on the palate brighter notes of red cherry and pepper appear and the tannins give a perceptible grip. Nevertheless, I'd drink this within the decade. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028

Luscious dark crimson Brunello with bountiful and intense aromas of red fruit, blackberry, spice, leather and cedar that lingers. The wine is clean, sharp but bold and generous at the same time. There is a touch of bitter almond, followed by softer tones of red berry and spice on the palate, with a long, lingering finish. ~ Winery notes
About Cortonesi La Mannella
The "La Mannella" farm, owned by the Cortonesi family, covers a surface of 56 hectars (138 acres), eight (19 acres) of which especially devoted to the production of "Brunello di Montalcino". Its wine-making activity started at the beginning of the seventies, and its vineyards are placed in one of the most valuable areas of the region, both north and south-east from Montalcino. It is a young company, in fact their first bottled vintage is from 1990. It is strictly a family business. And works according to the tradition, employing also modern technologies, that help enhancing the quality of the products made. The favorable location of its vineyards, and the rocky soil where they are planted, all contribute to the making of a deep and elegant Brunello, a grape well suited also for a long ageing.
