Brunello di Montalcino 2011 Canalicchio di Sopra
|Brand||Canalicchio di Sopra|
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautifully round and opulent wine that bursts open with vitality and a rush of immediate fruit. It shows lasting intensity with dried cherry, plum, blackberry, spice, leather and tobacco. Generally speaking, the aromas are soft and enduring. This wine offers enormous pleasure upfront and can be consumed within the next ten years. The wine is less adapted for long aging given the approachable tannins and ripe fruit flavors. In its current form, it is a delicious Brunello.
A perfumed version, this reveals cherry, strawberry, spice and leather flavors, with briar and tobacco accents. Firm and a bit gruff on the finish, but this hangs together in the end.
