Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Tenute Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino 2007

Sku: 043645

The delicate pink juice of the tiny, nearly black-skinned Brunello grape yields a dark, purple-red wine which is characterized by extraordinary concentration, elevated acidity and enormous tannic extract. The wine is typically closed and quite austere when young, often backward and unapproachable. Generally considered to be young at ten years in an average vintage, Brunello di Montalcino's proponents contend that the best vintages can easily surpass a century and still remain in their prime.

Tasting notes
This full-bodied wine offers intense aromas and flavorsof red berries offset by notes of leather and incense, supported by firm, elegant tannins.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Apr 2012)
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty wine laced with dried cherries, crushed flowers, licorice and spices. The wine’s mid-weight structure and modest depth both suggest it is best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
