Question: What in your opinion are the more recent best quality vintages of Brunello di Montalcino for cellaring?

Answer: Quite subjective but I would recommend those amazing 2010s followed by 2006 & 2004 from the last decade. More current best years this decade include the very classic 2016 that should age well for a long time. Some excellent 2015 wines but in an more approachable style for earlier drinking. 2017 was a more difficult drought year with a smaller crop showing good structure with lots of tannins compared to the harmony of 2018 and the 2019 with a very large crop. Lots of good choices.
