Brunello di Montalcino 2012

Brunello-Mania is still in full force. The historic 2010 vintage has come and gone but the wine of Montalcino has not lost any steam. Tuscany’s most prestigious wine, Brunello di Montalcino, has been exploding in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason. The Sangiovese Grosso varietal creates wine of great depth and structure but maintains an approachability in their youth, that their northern counterpart Barolo cannot obtain. It is easy to be enamored with the velvety texture and silky tannins that make Brunello some of the sexiest wines in Italy.

The 2012 vintage has been released and we could not be more excited for them to be arriving. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcinos are characterized by impeccable balance, vibrant acidity and fine-grained tannins.

“Every once in a while, when visiting a specific wine region, I taste so many good bottles that I find myself thinking I might just turn in my author’s pen and start making wine (clearly, such dangerous thoughts last only a second or two before I come back to my senses). Most recently, this happened during my tastings of the 2012 Brunellos, when I tried one delicious example after another. Even more impressive, the 2012 vintage for Brunello stands out for its consistently high quality. I found more good to outstanding examples than in any past vintage and far fewer unfocused, unbalanced and high-alcohol wines.” – Vinous (Ian D’Agata)

Some are here, and some are on the way, but quantities are low. Do not hesitate and miss the opportunity to have these delightful wines in your cellar. Keep checking back as new wines are arriving weekly!
