    This excellent 2012 Brunello from Frescobaldi represents a more modern approach to the category and is one of the best examples of the style. It's bigger shouldered and denser in weight than average, which translates to a concentrated palate that's smooth and polished with loads of delicious black fruit flavors. Aging in newer French oak adds a pleasant touch of well-integrated oak as well.

    The nose of this wine is plumy, riper, with hints of French oak that give the wine sweetness in the nose followed by an earthy drift that reminds you the wine is from Tuscany. On the palate the wine has a density and richness, full-bodied, shows polished tannins that add to the sleekness of the wine. The flavors are plumy, spicy and show more fruit driven character than earth. The finish is polished, long and has hints of sweet vanillin highlighting the flavors.
    Drink from 2017 to 2027
