Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino 2017
|Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
A gorgeous offering, this opens with enticing scents of ripe woodland berries, blue flowers, new leather and baking spice. On the elegantly structured, savory palate, taut, polished tannins accompany raspberry compote, ripe Marasca cherry, star anise and crushed rosemary. It's already showing beautifully but will also offer years of fine sipping. Drink 2023-2029.
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino wafts up with vibrancy and spunk, showing woodland berries and herbs with crushed wet stone and undergrowth in an incredibly fresh and lively expression. It's soft and pliant upon entry, enveloping with its saturating raspberry fruits and inner spice, as mineral tension builds giving way to sweet, elegant tannins and inner florals. The 2017 shows a more slender yet well-muscled interpretation of the 2017 vintage, but it remains remarkably pretty and balanced throughout. Due to the vintage conditions and severe selection, production was down by 12%.
