Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino 2007
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Castello Romitorio Brunello di Montalcino possesses strong structural properties fit for maturing and evolving over a period of time. This Brunello will grow finer with age although it is ready to drink upon release. Aged 12 months in medium toasted, fine grain, French oak Tonneaux and an additional 14 months in large Slovanian oak casks.
Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
This is a lovely Brunello with black cherry, plum, smoke, bacon, leather and a drying touch of crushed mineral on the nose. It is rich and concentrated, with a slightly sweet-smelling bouquet. The mouthfeel is compact, tight and polished-but there is excellent length too.
Aromas of blueberries and lemons, with hints of flowers. Turns to ripe raspberries. Full body, with firm tannins and fresh clean finish. Refined and pretty. Very bright acidity. Lively.
