In Tuscany 2016 was a spectacular year for wine and this is epitomized perfectly in the Madonna del Piano 2016. On the nose there are hints of violets, black cherries, eucalyptus and a hint of hazelnut at the end. This red is very expressive on the nose but very complex on the pallet. The tannins are firm but tend to soften with time. There is a nice balance between the firmness of the tannins and the acidity and minerality of the wine which is due to the very harmonious and balanced vintage which 2016 was blessed with. This Riserva has been compared with the prized 2006 vintage, with its balance and power. It can be opened in 5 or 6 years but can also wait 10-20 years.

3 reviews for Valdicava Madonna del Piano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016

  1. WS

    Expressive yet complex, this red is already revealing tertiary hints of truffle, fading roses and spice. Features cherry, raspberry, iron, eucalyptus and anise flavors allied to a firm, compact structure. Balanced and long, with fresh fruit, spice and mineral accents lingering on the endless finish. Best from 2025 through 2045.

  2. WA

    The Valdicava 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Madonna del Piano impresses for its intensity, its balance and its freshness. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a good amount of fruit weight and power that is offset by acidity and the lifted, vibrant quality of the bouquet. If balance is the objective, this wine meets it goals, although like with many of its peers, you certainly won’t miss the deep inner power of this determined Brunello.

  3. JS

    This is heavenly on the nose with fresh flowers such as violet and cherries with undertones of freshly shaved sandalwood. It’s full-bodied with very fine tannins that are focused and intense with a polished nature. This is a complete wine that impresses at every level. Give it at least five to six years to come together and resolve the tannin structure. Better after 2027.
