country: Italy / region: Tuscany / style: Wine / size: 750 ml / vintage: 2012 / sku: 8000072
A great wine with an intense bouquet and balanced tannins that express all the characteristics of the "terroir" in terms of its quality and type, both in the selection of clones and in the selection of the best-situated and sunniest terrain.

A firm, elegant and well-defined style, boasting cherry, currant, licorice, leather and spice flavors. Concentrated and long, with a robust, dense finish. Best from 2020 through 2033.
JSJames Suckling: 92 points
A ripe red with plum and lemon-peel undertones. Very perfumed. Medium to full body, silky tannins and a polished finish. Very fine.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is an interesting wine that seems to break ties with the darker and riper style we've seen in past vintages from Camigliano. The fact that this nuanced and elegant style has been achieved in a warm vintage is as impressive as it is unlikely. You got to hand it to the hard working vineyard team that evidently found the right elements (like harvest times and yields) to reach a more profound sense of harmony. The mouthfeel is streamlined and tight. Like many of its peers, this wine is best for near and medium-term consumption. Yet, the wine remains softly balanced and soothing on the senses nonetheless.
