Carpineto Brunello di Montalcino 2011
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Bouquet: Decisive, fine, broad and lingering with hints of vanilla, cherry, raspberry, and licorice. icon. Flavor: Dry, warm, smooth, well textured and lingering on the palate. Food Pairing: Great wine with roasts, grilled meats, wild game, and elaborate dishes, as well as rare T-bone steaks. It can also be served alone, as a "reflection" wine.
A beefy, tannic style, with submerged cherry and plum flavors, accented by spice and leather notes. The fruit core extends through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2033. 1,500 cases made.
Scorched earth, cured meat, toasted nut and grilled herb aromas lead the nose on this full-bodied red. The warm, ripe palate doles out raspberry jam, mature black cherry, vanilla and star anise framed in firm, velvety tannins.
