The alcohol is high at 15.5% but that power and intensity is nicely wrapped within the wine's supple richness. This is a delicious Brunello at a quasi-affordable price tag.

    Good bright, dark red.  Very pure, fresh aromas of red cherry, violet, earth, and red licorice. Then silky and smooth in the mouth, with a light saline quality carrying through the rising, floral finish. Strikes me as much livelier and taut, but also more precise, than other vintages of this wine, usually marked by a soft, fleshy personality that I associate with this specific section of the Montalcino production zone. You might say the vintage wins out over the soil and microclimate in 2012.
