Palazzo Brunello di Montalcino 2011
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
A broad, rich style, with dense tannins underneath the cherry, plum, leather and earth notes. Balanced, in a beefy way, with the tannins and earth accents playing out on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2028. 1,000 cases made.
This wine shows a savory bouquet with smokey notes of burnt chestnut or scorched earth. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is an oak-driven expression of Sangiovese that also shows ample intensity as far as its fleshy and fruity side is concerned. Ultimately, the wine reaches good balance and a deep sense of plushness and richness.
