San Giorgio Brunello di Montalcino Ugolforte 2014
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Bright full red. Inviting soil-inflected aromas of musky strawberry, mocha, and violet. Broad, round and sweet on the palate, with fine-grained bitter cherry, sandalwood and spicy flavors. Creamy and welcoming in the mouth, and not exactly the last word in inner-mouth tension or grip, but offers savory fruit notes and a fine dusting of tannins that persist nicely on the long back end.
A taut laser of a red, with focused berry fruit and a leafy underbrush note. Despite the slim profile, the tannins are dense and the acidity vibrant. Drink now. 900 cases made, 250 cases imported.
