Beautifully etched, focused and sharp, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the best wines released this vintage in Montalcino. This is a spectacular effort that underlines the high quality of fruit that was obtained in this challenging vintage. Wild berry, cola and balsam herb aromas are followed by drying mineral tones that are elegant and graceful. The effect lingers long on the palate. Given its genuine and streamlined texture, the wine promises to flesh out further as it completes its long evolution.
