Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello di Montalcino 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Fattoria La Lecciaia|
Bright deep red. The pure, enticing nose hints at raspberry, gunflint, licorice, and minerals. Dense but juicy, this boasts terrific energy and an enticing mineral overlay to its bright, precise red berry and floral flavors. Outstanding focus and lift here, but this will need time to expand. Finishes with building but subtle concentration and great length. Knockout stuff.
This opens with red plum, underbrush and culinary spice aromas. The straightforward, savory palate shows red currant jam, tobacco and a touch of thyme. It's already enjoyable, with rounded tannins.
This Brunello is characterized by dried fruit aromas with smoky layers at the back. Pressed cherry and plum remains at the core of this wine, but crushed mineral and dried herb both play important supporting roles. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino shows mid-weight body and moderate length. In fact, the wine ends quite suddenly. Don't wait too long to drink this wine.
