Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine Enthusiast"Cellar Selection" Forest floor, wild berry, new leather and balsam are some of the aromas you'll find in this bright, linear red. On the palate, firm, polished tannins support ripe red cherry, white pepper, andcrushed mint notes with a hint of black tea. It's still young and tightly wound but already boasts stunning elegance. Drink 2020-2032.
Wine SpectatorThis offers a mix of strawberry and cherry fruit that is very pure, married to an elegant frame. Beautifully balanced, with refined tannins and a mineral-, tobacco- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2032. 916 cases made.
