Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2012
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Castiglion del Bosco|
Wine SpectatorHighly recommended. A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032. 4,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastFrench oak, tobacco and exotic spice aromas emerge in the glass. The firm, full-bodied palate delivers dried black cherry, raspberry compote, vanilla and licorice flavors, framed by assertive but fine-grained tannins. Drink 2020-2027.
