About

94

"The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva bursts open with inviting aromas of dark cherries and plus joined together with leather, herbs, tobacco, moist earth and a sweet toasted character all taking shape. On the palate this possesses a gorgeous medium-plus body with an attractive plush mouthfeel and excellent overall depth. The finish is long and expressive with flavors of dark cherries and spices lingering on. A fantastic Brunello with a modern edge."

93 Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva offers plumpness and softness that you don't find as easily in the more acidic (and nervous) 2013 vintage. This vintage saw a warm and dry summer season, and those conditions tend to add more weight and textural heaviness to Sangiovese. This Riserva opens to a dark color and medium-rich concentration. The bouquet is fleshed out with red and purple fruit tones of cherry, plum and blackberry. The finish shows ample power and density."
