The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is absolutely fabulous. It immediately begins to draw you in with its gorgeous complex aromas of dried berries and red plums which are joined by exotic spices, mushrooms, hazelnut and orange zest. On the palate this continues to impress with its gorgeous silky, refined texture, along with outstanding overall balance and finesse. It displays remarkable focus and precision leading up to the long, graceful finish. This is already sensational and should continue to show beautifully over the course of the next decade, and likely beyond.
