Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2016

This wine is massive. Intense and deeply balsamic nose, Worcestershire sauce and iodine, very savory. Some dark berry fruit extract underneath. Dense and intensely mouthfilling. Again, little discernible fruit but copious savory flavors. Massive body. Lengthy finish. A Shrek of a wine. (But the label is awful, very ugly.)

UPDATE: Night 3, this is softer and more in balance, with more ripe fruit peeking through to balance the previously inky savoriness. Upping from 8.9 to 9.1, but for the next few years, make sure this gets plenty of air.

I guess you just couldn't wait to pull that cork, huh?


Rosso di Montalcino Sangiovese 2011

Blackberries, dark cherries, earth, coffee, dark chocolate and cedar on the nose. Nice acidity and clean. Awesome for the table. — 9 years ago
