Very fine and delicate with a dense and compacted palate, fine tannins with dark chocolate and stone undertones. Extremely elegant yet structure. Drink now or hold.
The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is quite pretty and expressive. Lifted, perfumed aromatics meld into bright red cherry and plum fruit. This is one of the more delicate wines of the vintage, and also one of the most expressive. The 2011 offers lovely balance for the vintage in an understated, mid-weight style that can be enjoyed pretty much upon release. Sweet red plum, cherry pit and crushed flowers linger on the perfumed finish. (AG)
Bright cherries and fresh forest fruit rise from the bouquet of the Sesta di Sopra 2011 Brunello di Montalcino. The wine offers proud primary aromas that are plump and pristine. This is not always an easy feat given the warm conditions of the vintage and the fact that Brunello ages for five years in the cellar before its commercial release. Those conditions tend to make for flat and tired wines, but you certainly don't get that here. Instead, the wine is surprisingly intact and youthful. I would suggest a conservative drinking window of about five years so that you don't miss out on that primary fruit. (ML)
Engaging scents suggesting rose, iris, perfumed berry and Mediterranean herb meld together in the glass. The soft, bright palate offers red cherry, raspberry, a hint of tobacco and a coffee note alongside supple tannins. (KO)
