95+ Points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tenute Silvio Nardi farms some very interesting vineyard sites on the northern side of the appellation. Of these sites, the Manachiara vineyard is very distinctive. Cool nighttime temperatures and diurnal shifts add to the sharpness and definition of this pretty wine. From a warm vintage, the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Vigneto Manachiara benefits from its cool microclimate. The bouquet opens to wild rose and cherry, but there is a unique mineral tone that recalls slate or crushed granite. Subtle spice and milled white pepper give length and complexity to this beautifully balanced Brunello. This is a terrific wine from the lovely 2015 vintage." 10/20
95 Points, Eric Guido, Vinous: "The nose is dark, showing an alluring richness, as black cherry airs out to give way to fresher notes of strawberry, with hints of brown spices and lifting notes of wild brush and herbs. On the palate, depths of black fruit and spice are carried on textures that feel like pure silk, as dark spices and inner florals amass. The finish reveals the wine’s hulking structure, yet it is balanced by zesty acids with lingering wild berry fruits, saline minerals, and a hint of citrus and spice. The 2015 single-vineyard Brunello di Montalcino Manachiara displays wonderful balance, perfect oak management (it was aged in a combination of French Allier Barrique and botti), and is built for the long haul." 04/20
96 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: “There’s real finesse and focus to this red with floral, berry and wet-earth undertones on the nose and palate. Full body, integrated tannins and a long and focused finish. Shows a linear and precise palate. Excellent. Drink now or hold.” 09/20
