Donatella Cinelli Colombini Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2007

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose was earthy yet elegant with ripe red berries and forest floor. On the palate, it was velvety with underlying structure and intense yet juicy red berry fruit. The finish was long and clinging to the palate.
