Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 95

A taster would never know that the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino hailed from a warm vintage, with its bright and airy bouquet that blends mentholated herbs with exotic spice, worn leather and dusty dried strawberries. This coasts across the palate with ease, zesty and fresh, with tart red berries and sour citrus tones that add tension, yet also maintains a marvelous vibrancy. While long and gently structured still, there’s a finesse here that keeps me looking back to the glass for more, as the 2012 leaves the mouth watering with a tart cherry pit twang. Production was down around 30% in 2012, with a strict selection in the vineyards and a much earlier harvest that ended around September 15th. While drinking this today is certainly an option, there are still many years of evolution in store. [Eric Guido, 17/01/2023]

Robert Parker – 95

Poggio di Sotto has solidified its reputation as a top estate in the appellation. Mr. Claudia Tipa, the current owner, made a fantastic acquisition when he purchased this gem not too long ago. The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino does the denomination proud with a very special and unique set of aromatic characteristics. It’s hard to wrap your head around the wine’s complexity when you first approach the glass. I’m going to throw out a lot of descriptors that resonated with me including wild berry, underbrush, eucalyptus, dried ginger, cola, tobacco and cured meat. I’m a huge fan of those balsam-like nuances. The wine opens to medium consistency with luminous ruby-colored highlights. The mouthfeel is as smooth as silk sheets. I love this wine but am definitely less enamored by the steep price point. [Monica Larner, 28/09/2017]

Castelnuovo dell’Abate. Very pale crimson with some blue. Unusual spicy nose. Edgy acidity on the end. Bitter cherries. Rather confidently going its own way. Much fresher and lighter than most.  [05/03/2017]
