Rich, full of cherry and raspberry fruit and augmented by tobacco, spice and mineral flavors. Harmonious and long, this has all the elements to age well and develop greater complexity and nuance. Best from 2020 through 2033. 375 cases made.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Loreto sees fruit sourced from a vineyard site located on a sunny, east-facing slope just in front of the new winery. The well-draining limestone soils make for even ripening of fruit and contribute to the wine's rich suppleness. Dried cherry and blackberry segues to spice, cured leather, tar and cola. The wine is darkly concentrated and powerful. One thing I noticed is that Vigna Loreto gives the impression of offering less acidity and overall sharpness compared to the Brunello annata. For that reason, I prefer the base Brunello in 2012 by a tiny margin.

Underbrush, new leather, truffle and chopped herb aromas take shape in this full-bodied red. The palate is brawny, offering macerated cherry, coffee and licorice flavors, framed by chewy tannins. You'll also notice an alcoholic heat on the finish. Drink 2018-2023.
