Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Poggio Il Castellare|
Sporting cherry, strawberry, floral and leather aromas and flavors, this vibrant style is harmonious and structured, yet more elegant than powerful, with fine intensity and a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2020 through 2033. 1,800 cases made.
This opens with aromas of prune, vanilla and a suggestion of cedar. The straightforward palate offers black-cherry extract, star anise and clove alongside rounded tannins. It's evolving quickly so drink sooner rather than later to catch the remaining fruit sensations.
