Italian sunshine lights up this ruby red with warm red berries and delicate spices. Dried flowers and bright cherries greet the nose and just keep flowing across the medium-bodied palate, well-integrated with the remarkable tannins in this soft and creamy delight. An impressive showing out of a difficult vintage, this is one to double down on for the table and the cellar.
This wine magically shows more warmth and sunshine than this difficult vintage gave in reality. The 2014 Brunello di Montalcino delivers extra density and a richly fibrous texture. It exceeds expectations for this difficult vintage that was plagued by rain and humidity, resulting in much weaker wines across the board. You do taste some of that leanness, but this wine performs very nicely despite the challenges.
