2012 Brunello di Montalcino – a Beautiful Vintage!
Thanks to a hot and dry growing season, berries were very small and dark. The resulting wines are dark, thick and richly extracted in terms of appearance. The wines show brilliant colors. I also found the bouquets to be beautifully intense and opulent across the board. In fact, 2012 is distinguished by the darkness of its color. Rich primary fruit is followed by spice, leather and balsam herb. Monica Lerner – The Wine Advocate
