Gianni Brunelli Rosso di Montalcino 2018
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Rosso di Montalcino|
The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino from Le Chiuse di Sotto takes Rosso to a whole new level, with a bouquet that pulls you closer to the glass. This is showing mineral-infused black cherry, with moist earth tones, fall leaves, green stems, and hints of animal musk. Strawberry, leaning toward cranberry, citrus-tinged spices, hints of tannin and pretty red florals resonate throughout the finish, leaving an impression more of a Brunell than a Rosso. Simply stunning.
Aromas of wild berry, moist soil, eucalyptus and blue flower shape the nose. It's bright and linear, offering strawberry, sour cherry and the barest hint crushed herb alongside lithe, polished tannins. Vibrant acidity keeps it light on its feet.
