This Brunello is at that nice price point where we sometimes find solid quality equal to others costing twice as much. Sometimes you get what you pay for, others times you get more. This is an example of the latter.
The '05 La Velona really delivers and is readily available across the U.S. Interestingly, it is yet another quality wine from the area of Castelnuovo dell'Abate, a section of the DOCG zone that has an abundance solid producers, and frequently yields wines that hit my sweet spot.
