Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino 2010
A classically poised, precise Sangiovese from the region’s finest southern terroirs. A bouquet of red roses and wildflowers mixes with dark red fruits on the nose; the mouth is richly endowed with notes of dark chocolate, poached black cherries and a hint of almonds. Tannins while silky are present as this is just an infant in terms of great Brunello—an elegant wine that will reward for years to come.
One of the most important wine regions in Italy, Tuscany is home to the cities of Florence and Siena, the districts of Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino, and the wineries of Sassicaia, Tignanello and Ornellaia. Tuscany is also home to the indigenous Italian grape variety, Sangiovese. Most of the wine coming from Tuscany is made from some clone of this varietal, but a growing trend, started by the renegade winemakers of those Super Tuscans, is to incorporate more international varietals.
