♦ Tasting Note
Soft, velvety fruit opens the nose of the ripe and very luscious 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. This hot-vintage Sangiovese exudes dark fruit, prune and black plum. There are sweet notes of spice, leather and tobacco at the back. This Brunello plays its best cards in the mouth. It offers crisp contours and lots of textural richness and fruity fiber throughout. Some 11,000 750-milliliter bottles were produced.
