Silvio Nardi is made up of two different estates – Casale del Bosco, bought in 1950 and located west of Brunello, and Manachiara situated to the east.

The Casale del Bosco estate is comprised of five separate parcels – Casale itself, plus Cerralti, Sassi, Oria and Grancia.  The Manachiara property holds the flagship Manachiara vineyard, plus Colombaiolo and Pinzale.  Some of these vineyards are offered as separate bottlings. The regular Brunello bottling is a blend of the different sites and benefits from the differing exposures and soil types that make up the blend.

Aging for the first twelve months is in a mix of new and older French Allier barriques an the second year is in larger Slavonian oak botti. The crus get an additional six months in the smaller barrels and are held back the winery before release.

Wine Advocate: 95+ Points

The Tenute Silvio Nardi 2016 Brunello di Montalcino makes a big impact in the glass thanks to its dark color saturation and the pretty intensity of its aromas that range from dark fruit and plum to soft potting soil and grilled herb. You get beautiful balance here even more so when you allow the bottle to breathe for a few hours. A twofold delivery of freshness and tannic backbone gives the wine the DNA required to hold 10 years or more.

Vinous: 93 Points

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Silvio Nardi is dark and earthy with a bit of a rustic edge that I find quite attractive. Floral undergrowth and rich soil tones give way to crushed black cherries with hints of brown spice. There’s a combination of ripe primary fruit and zesty acids which creates an appealing and juicy expression even as grippy tannins slowly mount toward the close. Remnants of licorice mocha and tobacco linger along with the slightest hint of heat which doesn’t get in the way. The 2016 Tenute Silvio Nardi won’t require more than a few years of cellaring to show its best. (Drink between 2024-2030)
