May 2017 - Monica Larner - The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino offers delicate tones and crisp lines that set it apart. Dark fruit is followed by dried cherry, pressed flowers and mild spice. The wine shows very nice balance and impressive length. The finish is polished and bright with balanced acidity that makes a good contrast to the depth and power for which Brunello is known. The wine is aged in botte grande and tonneaux for 30 months.
