GAJA Brunello di Montalcino 'Rennina' 2011

The 2011 'Rennina' Brunello di Montalcino presents a completely modern style, with loads of ripe dark fruit. As this instantly opens, it releases aromas of black cherries and blackberries woven together with spices, floral, leather and even hints of white truffle and vanilla all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied with a polished, yet muscular backbone and notable depth as it heads into the long finish. When tasting the 2011's from Angelo Gaja side by side, I found the 'Sugarille' to be the more complete wine of the two, however 'Rennina' was the more expressive wine at this stage.
