Carpineto Brunello di Montalcino 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Intense ruby red, with pale pomegranate highlights. Decisive, fine, broad and lingering with hints of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. Dry, warm, smooth, well textured and lingering on the palate. Great wine with roasts, grilled meats, wild game, and elaborate dishes, as well as rare T-bone steaks. It can also be served alone, as a "reflection" wine.
Classic Sangiovese aromas of violet, wild berry, baking spice and a whiff of new leather meld together on this. The structured full-bodied palate delivers black cherry, crushed raspberry, clove and star anise set against firm acidity and a backbone of tightly wound tannins that grip the finish. Drink 2023-2033.
A fleshy style whose richness offsets the leafy tannins, paving the way for cherry, almond, leather and iron notes. Finishes dry, with length and grip. Best from 2021 through 2035. 2,850 cases made, 950 cases imported.
