Tassi Brunello di Montalcino 2012
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
In the glass, Tassi Brunello di Montalcino has an intense ruby red color with garnet reflections. The nose is very intense. Hints of ripe fruit stand out, in particular plum and cherry accompanied by a very fine and elegant spiciness. In the mouth, it is pleasant and refined.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93: The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino opens to dark color saturation and a rich appearance. This pretty wine offers richness and intensity with many layers of compelling aromas to keep your attention. Dark fruit, dried cherry, plum, and prune set the stage. The wine's textural performance is also dense and thick. That generous opulence helps the wine to wrap thickly over the palate. This is a powerful interpretation with 15% alcohol that adds to the overall weight and muscle of the wine.
Another fresh and nutty 2012 with balsamic vinegar, chocolate, berry, and nutty undertones. Medium to full body and a dense mid-palate. Very flavorful and rich.
