    Baricci’s 2012 is a magnificent wine and a first-rate follow up to the now legendary 2010 vintage. The nose is classic Baricci full of wild black cherry, cinnamon, anise, cardamom and leather with a bit of what I call sweet earth. Its superb southeasterly position on the Montosoli hill allows its character to shine through without being overly extracted and leaves it with that hint of earthy complexity. On the palate there is real focus, the wine is long, layers of complexity wrapped around its central core, with a vibrant palate presence and still while chocked full of complex flavors the wine is supple, lithe and smooth. This wine packs plenty of muscle but it’s not bulky muscle it’s power is long, elegant and graceful. The finish is….well it doesn’t finish it just seems to go on and on effortlessly. We sometimes think that aging ability is built on some massive structure but it’s not it is truly about balance and Baricci is one of Montalcino’s best expressions of complexity and balance. We here at K&L have been drinking Baricci Brunello for a long time, this is our 15th vintage and you can ask most of the staff members who were smart enough to buy earlier vintages the age sensationally. One of Brunello di Montalcino’s founding members, there were only 28 to start, this is a wine not to be missed!
