Zachys Is Proud To Announce The Release Of The Next “Rockstar” Vintage From Brunello Di Montalcino - 2012

Over the last decade Zachys has become America’s Premier Brunello Destination as a result of regularly getting our clients into the best vintages early on with unrivalled diversity of selection and great pricing. There can be no better example than the 2010 vintage in which we sold THOUSANDS of cases of great Brunello. It's time again people!! On February 1st the newest vintage set for release from Montalcino already has the wine world taking note:

“A ROCKSTAR 2012 VINTAGE FOR BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO
Fans of Brunello di Montalcino are in for a treat with the 2012 vintage. I tasted about 100 wines in October in a blind tasting in Tuscany and was impressed with their beautiful aromas, vibrant fruit, lively acidity, and ultra-fine tannins. These sangioveses are much more precise and finer than the bolder and riper 2011s. They have more in common with the legendary 2010 vintage and are most like the 2004s, a harmonious and gorgeous year for Brunellos.…“I am really, really happy with the quality,” said one of Italy’s leading consulting enologist Carolo Ferrini, who also makes his own tiny and excellent quality Brunello, Giodo. “The wines are superior to 2011.”…Indeed, that’s what I love about the 2012 Brunellos I’ve tasted so far. They show beautiful perfumes of ripe fruit and hints of earth with a mandarin and orange highlight. The palates are rich and dense, with an underlying crispness and linear thread from start to finish…” —James Suckling, CEO/Editor 11/2016

Just released on January 16th on www.jamessuckling.com was a video interviewing top producers of the region who feel the 2012 vintage is:

Giancarlo Pacenti (Siro Pacenti)
“Fantastic…elegant, very long with good acidity and fantastic balance….Incredible character…”
Vincenzo Abbruzzese (Valdicava)
“Aristocratic…slightly closed at first…great velvet and balance…will give great pleasure…”
Giacomo Neri (Casanova Di Neri)
“Very high quality…close to 2010 or 2006 vintage…”
Paolo Bianchini (Ciacci Piccolomini)
“Delivers similar pleasure as the 2010 vintage…”

2012 was a challenging growing season with a very hot Summer and some rain in August. Everybody was in agreement that the best wine produced came from thorough work in the vineyards as there were some inconsistencies and yields were down pretty significantly.  The end result, however, was some pretty great Brunellos.

The only negative I am seeing as a buyer right now is the reduced yields have created very limited availability. We are not seeing anywhere near the same quantities offered to us as we did with the 2010 vintage. We are opening this campaign with well over 60 selections available and our list will be growing on a DAILY basis over the next couple of weeks (Our advice is to keep checking our web feature as some new wines may come and go quickly).

The energy and excitement around this vintage is truly exciting and very reminiscent of the start to the 2010 campaign. Zachys will continue to be in the forefront of this vintage/region solidifying its place on top as America’s Premier Brunello Destination. Jump in with both feet and stay tuned for many exciting announcements to come on the vintage over the next few weeks.

All my best,
Andrew
