Biondi-Santi Brunello di Montalcino Annata 2007
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is gorgeous. The estate's preference for picking on the early side is one of the factors that help balance some of the fleshiness of the vintage. This is an especially silky, supple Brunello from Biondi-Santi. The overt personality of the year comes through, but not at the expense of the house's style. Floral notes reappear to frame the elegant, expressive finish. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037.
Grainy tannins set the pace in this pure yet chewy red. Cherry and raspberry flavors are accented by tobacco notes, and there's sweetness on the finish. Elegant and refined, this should be approachable soon. Best from 2014 through 2025. 6,418 cases made.
