San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino 2011


SKU 17891


The colour is ruby red with a slight tendency to garnet. The perfume is intense and complex, with dominant notes of Amarena cherry. The olfactory phase continues on the palate. The flavour is full, harmonious and persistent, with dense and silky tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a little shy at first, but as the bouquet opens it reveals some ripe tones of blackberry preserves, cured meat and used leather. In a blind tasting you might guess the wine is older than it actually is. It shows a luminous garnet color, but the bouquet doesn't offer the tonic freshness or definition that you should expect from a new release. My fear is that this Brunello will disintegrate faster than it should. It lacks complexity and depth.
