This shows pure and fresh fruit that many others don't have. Also, there are plenty of linear tannins. Precise and beautiful. Medium to full body. Persistent finish. Better in 2019.

A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through...   A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032. — B.S.

There's a wild or untamed element with forest berry, underbrush, wild mushroom, lavender, tar and licorice. Balsam herbs also appear with cola and grilled rosemary. There's a lot to keep your attention. The mouthfeel is more streamlined and slightly shorter compared to previous vintages. This seems to be a common trait in 2012 Brunello but it does not make too much of a difference in this case. - Monica Larner

Tightly-knit and still youthful, with enticing violet-suffused cherry aromas unfolding onto a tense yet free-flowing palate bristling with pronounced acidity and chalky, dry-edged tannins. Well-done.

Vibrant high strung Brunello with crisp aromas of red berries and minerals lifted by a note of white pepper. A great deal more plush and silky in texture than usual, with minerally red berry flavors showing energy and focus. One of the best classico young Brunellos from Castiglion del Bosco I remember tasting.
