ALTESINO Brunello di Montalcino 'Montosoli' 2012

Montosoli is the single vineyard cru Brunello from Altesino, and year after year it is amongst the top wines made from the region, as is the case in this vintage. The 2012 is an utterly compelling wine, which is all about elegance and finesse. As this begins to open it releases striking aromatics of blackberries, strawberries and plums woven together with freshly cut floral, spices, orange peel, leather and hints of fresh white truffle, all taking shape in this stunning Brunello. As mentioned, the silky texture results in an incredibly finessed mouthfeel, as it also displays remarkable balance and wonderful purity leading into the long finish, which is marked by sweet red fruits and exotic spices. Today, even at this young age, Montosoli is extremely impressive and a pleasure to drink, however there is no sense of urgency, as this should thrive in the cellar for years to come.
