Enticing perfumed berry, violet, new leather and a truffle scents emerge in this textbook Brunello. On the savory, full-bodied palate, licorice, clove and chopped herb flavors accent a juicy core of ripe black cherry fruit. Firm, refined tannins provide structure. It's already tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2020–2032. *Cellar Selection* (KO)
Austere, with dusty tannins corralling the cherry, strawberry, earth and tobacco flavors. The bright acidity keeps this focused, lingering on the dry finish. Very tight, with a lot of savory, balsamic notes. Best from 2021 through 2035. (BS)
Vivid dark red. Musky and balsamic notes dominate the subtle red fruit aromas and flavors. Showcases a strong earthy component and slightly chunky, coarse tannins that will require lots of patience, but there’s enough fruit lurking in the background to last the tannins out. (ID) 92+
You can smell the effects of a warm growing season in this one with very ripe cherry and strawberry aromas that follow through to a full body, round and soft tannins and a tangy finish. Almost sweet and sour. Drink now.
Federico Buffi's 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a fine and streamlined expression that puts special focus on the smaller details. The wine offers streamlined simplicity and this is its most attractive quality. Polished aromas of white cherry, grilled herb and forest floor give the wine a bright and slightly menthol-like personality. The finish is long and polished. This Brunello from Baricci offers purity and grace. (ML) 90+
Tasted blind. Lustrous, mid ruby with orange tinges. Closed on the nose and quite backward on the palate, yet there is a great balance between brooding fruit, muscular tannins and just the right dose of acidity. A little stubborn for the moment. (WS) 17+/20 points
