Silvio Nardi Brunello Di Montalcino 2012
96 pts Decanter
Bright and vivid with crushed raspberries and orange peel on the nose. Full body, tight and solid tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Pretty austerity. Better in 2019 when the tannins soften.
Rose, strawberry, cherry and black pepper aromas and flavors are the highlights of this red. The unyielding structure provides support, surrounded by a lush texture. Fine length. Best from 2020 through 2033.
Red berry, toast and black spice aromas lead the nose, accented by whiffs of espresso. The palate offers licorice, clove, dried cherry and vanilla notes, while a backbone of fine-grained tannins provides support.
Appealing nose with red cherry and floral notes; perhaps a little less imposing on the palate, but this is a charming, easy-going style, without the intensity and power of some.
