Brunello di Montalcino 2012 Cerbaiona
€ 133,04 (in Vat)
Cerbaiona's 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a nuanced and delicate wine that offers ample power, intensity and length. What the wine does best is paint a portrait of the grape in its most pure and naked state. It offers crisp outlines with loads of wild berry, blue flower and moist earth on the inside. That balanced ensemble of flavors adds to the long and polished persistence you feel in the mouth. Give this wine another 10 years of aging to best appreciate its slow evolution and budding complexity.
Cask sample 1: Deep ruby with a narrow orange rim. Cool fruit and herbs on the nose. Remarkable sweet and ripe fruit on the attack with firm, bitter tannins. A successful balancing act, showing great concentration while keeping perfect focus and poise. Cask sample 2: Lustrous ruby with a narrow orange rim. More ethereal but at the same time bags of concentration and raspberry on the nose. Perhaps just a tiny hint of undergrowth. Firm powdery tannins, which are less bitter. Really complementary to sample 1. Walter Speller
