Even die-hard Piedmont fans who normally never set foot in Tuscany will make an exception for La Torre Brunello. Yes, it is very Brunello-like, with its power, even lushness, and its inimitable Tuscan flavors of leather, rosemary and wild cherries. But it also possesses so much of what lovers of more northerly wines crave: energy, freshness and finesse. This is thanks to altitude. Located in the village of Sesti at around 1500 feet, La Torre produces some of the freshest high-altitude Sangiovese in the DOC.
