Brunello di Montalcino
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino flows from the glass with sweet red cherries, tobacco, spices and crushed flowers. There is an attractive radiance to the fruit that makes the wine fairly approachable today, yet the vibrant acidity suggests it will age quite well. Hints of licorice add complexity on the clean finish. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
