Sommelier Filippo Bartolotta tastes the 2015 Brunello di Montalcino wine from Palazzo Winery during his journey to discover Montalcino
The Palazzo winery is an intriguing story about family, about love for the land, and years spent abroad before returning to the homeland and roots of the Palazzo family. The roots of the Palazzo family project actually began in 1982, a spectacular year for Italians, as Filippo Bartolotta, expert sommelier, reminds us with a quick meander down Italy’s nostalgic eras. The 1980s proved to be a siren song for many Italians who had emigrated, and the country welcomed them back with open arms, ready to embrace a new future together.
The Palazzo family began building their dream winery in the heart of the Brunello di Montalcino wine region. Their goal was to create a small, family-run, artisanal winery producing limited amounts of hand-crafted Brunello wines, favoring top-quality over larger numbers of bottles available.
Their ability to focus on the smaller details enable the Palazzo family to consistently craft spectacular selections that Filippo is delighted to taste on our behalf, sharing his tasting notes in the video above.
Let’s explore together with Filippo this small parcel of land in the center of Tuscany, and see how the Palazzo family’s wine-making philosophies translate into their Brunello di Montalcino wines. We think you’ll love the flexibility and versatility of this wine, but to be sure, let’s check out Filippo’s thoughts on this impressive selection.
