Complexity, superb structure, and an inviting, mouthfilling palate are the hallmarks of this Sangiovese grown in the 42-hectare Capanna vineyard facing towards the Mediterranean sea. A garnet-flecked ruby red, it releases generous, emphatic fragrances classic to Sangiovese, developing a near-endless progression notable for its beautiful balance.

Wine SpectatorHighly recommended. A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032. 4,000 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe Castiglion del Bosco 2012 Brunello di Montalcino exhibits classic lines and aromas that are faithfully characteristic of Tuscany's Sangiovese grape. There's a wild or untamed element with forest berry, underbrush, wild mushroom, lavender, tar and licorice. Balsam herbs also appear with cola and grilled rosemary. There's a lot to keep your attention. The mouthfeel is more streamlined and slightly shorter compared to previous vintages. This seems to be a common trait in 2012 Brunello but it does not make too much of a difference in this case.

James SucklingPlenty of dried-fruit and strawberry-jam aromas. Full body with round, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Sultanas. A flamboyant crowd-pleaser. Drink now.
