Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino 2011
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine SpectatorAmple cherry and plum fruit is augmented by eucalyptus, tobacco and earth accents, balanced by acidity and moderate tannins that all come together on the lingering finish. Best from 2017 through 2026.
Wine AdvocateCollosorbo's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino shows a bright and cheerful side of this warm vintage. The wine presents an easy and forthcoming aromatic profile with upfront tones of black cherry and dried blackberry. It offers good balance thanks to subtle tones of leather and spice that serve to flesh out and widen the bouquet. The quality of fruit is simple, slightly sweet and definitely on the ripe side. This is another good near-term Brunello from 2011.
Wine EnthusiastUnderbrush, sunbaked earth, cured meat, menthol, toast and mature plum aromas unfold in the glass. The ripe palate is mature and offers dried black, cherry, truffle, licorice, espresso and a funky hint of game alongside firm but somewhat fleeting tannins that leave a drying finish.
