94pt Brunello and More Exclusive- MUST BUY!
The estate of Corte dei Venti lies to the south east of the Comune di Montalcino, its sunniest zone, the area lying between Sant’ Angelo and Castelnuovo del Abate. It was born from the passion and the bond between wine and the land that ties the family of Clara Monaci to the territory of Montalcino. It is here that CdV allows the climate and the earth to create very traditional and elegant Brunello.
This tiny estate is the true essence of a “mom and pop” business with every aspect treated with a hands-on approach. Even the harvest is manual and involves a rigorous selection of the clusters for each wine typology. If you want to experience the true nature of Brunello, look no further than Corte dei Venti.
We had the pleasure to meet Clara Monaci here at WPW this week and taste all her wonderful wines. And, I am proud to bring them to you in this exclusive offer.
There is a very small amount of these wines available including the VERY hard to find 2010 vintage which is only being offered in our Mixed Brunello Case. The wines are literally unavailable anywhere but here at WPW and especially at these prices. You will not find a better deal on Brunello PERIOD!
2012 Corte dei Venti * Brunello di Montalcino
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a straight-shooting wine. The bouquet reveals dark fruit aromas with plum, blackberry, spice and saddle leather. The oak regime sees 36 months of barrel aging. The wine takes a few moments before it opens. Once it does, it paints a classic portrait of Brunello in a toasty vintage.
2013 Corte dei Venti * Brunello di Montalcino
Robust and powerful, the 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows thick textual richness with abundant cherry fruit and blackberry folded neatly within. This wine is sweet and succulent in terms of mouthfeel. Only 9,500 bottles were made. This is an enjoyable, near-term Brunello that really delivers.
2012 Corte dei Venti * Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Showing thick, black and ripe fruit, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a hearty Tuscan red to pair with grilled T-bone steak. There is a lot of richness here, supported by dark cherry, leather, tar and grilled rosemary. This wine makes your mouth water. Only 1,500 bottles were made. Beautiful!
