Tenuta La Fuga Brunello di Montalcino 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Tenuta La Fuga|
Deep ruby-red. Fragrant aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, herbs and minerals. Then juicy and easygoing, with a midweight palate presence and clean red/blue fruit flavors persisting nicely on the cool, crisp finish. Not a blockbuster (in keeping with the difficult year) but very pure. This Brunello boasts early appeal and is best drunk up quickly; but it's a very fine showing for 2014.
The slightly chewy texture envelops plum, cherry, fruitcake and licorice flavors, picking up dense tannins as this wine develops. Well-proportioned and leafy accents of eucalyptus and tobacco chime in on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 850 cases made, 250 cases imported.
