Brunello Di Montalcino 2011
This brunello from Camigliano is dark red with some transperency. In the nose ripe cherries, plums, cocao and earth. On the palate dominates dried cherries, cranberry, leather and clove. Despite the wines opulence it never feels jammy despite of the freshness. It shows more layers and tightly tannins. Leave for 5 years in cellar and this brunello will shine.
SOIL CHARACTERISTICS: soil with rocky fragments, with a good percentage of silt.
VINES: 100 percent Brunello di Montalcino (cloned selection of Sangiovese).
AGING POTENTIAL: This is a wine that is best at the moment it is released. Aging in the bottle, however, intensifies the delicacy of the tannin and develops the aroma.
CONCLUSION: A great wine with an intense bouquet and balanced tannins that express all the characteristics of the "terroir" in terms of its quality and type, both in the selection of clones and in the selection of the best-situated and sunniest terrain. A high-class wine that evolves in interesting ways over time. It is recommended for important events – to honor a loved one or a special guest (Sunday).
