Luce Della Vite Brunello di Montalcino 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Luce Della Vite|
Shows fine balance between the fresh cherry and berry fruit, with savory, wild herb and spice notes and a solid backbone of acidity. The tannins build on the finish, leaving a dusty, mouthcoating sensation. Best from 2021 through 2035. 266 cases imported.
Aromas of spiced plum, pipe tobacco, French oak and a whiff of pressed purple flower slowly take shape on this firmly structured red. The palate is youthfully austere, offering dried black cherry, pomegranate, green tea and clove framed in fresh acidity and bracing fine-grained tannins that give the finish a tight grip. An espresso note wraps up the close.
