Il Palazzone, 2013 Brunello di Montalcino
By Il Palazzone
Origin: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
*Brunello is a style of sangiovese specific to the region.
Producer's Notes: The color is a beautiful deep ruby with garnet hues. The 2013 has a complex nose; an initial basket of red berries and fruit and, with time in the glass, a slow-motion aroma explosion, passing from a Christmassy bouquet, to notes of eucalyptus and caramel, licorice and leather. The acidity is juicy and fresh, the wine well-balanced and harmonious. An impressive mouth-feel with a reassuring firm tannic structure and a very promising finish. Licorice, violets, mint and a distinctive flinty minerality.
