Capanne Ricci Brunello Di Montalcino 2011
|Appellation||Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastForest floor, tilled earth, truffle, ripe berry, thyme and a whiff of game are some of the aromas you'll find on this full-bodied red. The concentrated palate delivers fleshy black cherry, raspberry jam, cinnamon, clove and a hint of anise. Densely packed, velvety tannins leave a firm, polished finish. Drink 2019-2026.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a finely tuned and nicely polished expression of Sangiovese that shows a feminine and refreshingly elegant side of the vintage. The wine is balanced and integrated with bright berry notes of blackberry and dried raspberry that point to the relative young age of this cellar-worthy Brunello. It ends with a bright note of acidity and long flavors of dark fruit and spice.
