Sesta di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino 2013
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
|Brand||Sesta di Sopra|
Elegantly scented, this fragrant red opens with scents of perfumed berry, iris, pipe tobacco and exotic spice. The vibrant linear palate evokes juicy cranberry, sour cherry and star anise framed in tightly wound fine-grained tannins while bright acidity provides balance. A savory saline note lingers on the finish. Drink 2023-2033.
Dark and mysterious, this red offers plum, black cherry, leather, leafy tobacco and tar flavors. Fresh and lifted up by a layer of beefy tannins, lingering with a spicy, underbrush aftertaste. Best from 2023 through 2038.
