The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows easy lines with delicate nuances of red berry ramble, rose petal, dusty earth, crushed mineral, licorice and grilled herb. No one element outweighs the others. The wine presents a delicate patchwork of Sangiovese nuances but does so in the most elegant and understated matter. Feminine personality, the wine glides smoothly over the palate with gentle, polished tannins. This wine drinks well now and should show well in a few more years.
