Ferrero - Brunello di Montalcino - 2016

$85.00
Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Ferrero is earthy and packed full of ripe berries and woodland herbs in a slightly rustic yet wildly appealing way. The textures are silky and refined, ushering in a mix of savory cherry sauce and hints of cranberry offset by zesty citrus and tactile mineral tones. There’s a lovely purity here, as it tapers off to inner violet florals and autumnal spices. It’s already so easy to get lost in the 2016 and forget just how young it is today, with only a gentle tug of tannin toward the close. I don’t see this as a wine for the ages, but it should provide a lot of pleasure over the medium term.
