Light Sumatra coffee notes, with dark cocoa nib and baked red plum with a borderline persimmon coat on. A drop of night blooming jasmine surfacing briefly and African violet, and a fat lily thickness. There are baked cherries and a smoky paprika, too. Black cherry, that coils dustily into a toasty oak and resin dappled raspberry and roobios bitterness and fine grained tannins. #brunello #poggiocastellare #PianBossolino #italianwines #montalchino #Tuscany #riserva #wineallyouwant — a year ago
Baby #brunello ? Not really, but it's a decent lighter Tuscan Sangiovese nonetheless. Cherry, touch of vanilla and spice aroma with softer tannins (than the 2010 judging by other reviews) and some nice acidity. Pairs pretty well with red pasta dishes garnished with Parmesan though it's just mediocre when sipped without food.
