Valdicava's Brunellos offer a rare opportunity for the fine wine collector. Until recently relatively unknown, Vincenzo Abbruzzese's star is rising and his tiny 10 hectare estate is steadily achieving cult status among the wine elite. Perhaps most importantly of all for a 'modern' style Brunello, the use of oak is restrained and unobtrusive, supporting the wine's structure without overwhelming its character. All Valdicava grapes are organically grown and no chemical pesticides or fertilizers are used in the vineyards. Total production of the estate is just 6,000 cases.
