Fossacolle Brunello di Montalcino 2007

External Review by We Speak Wine:

The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Fossacolle is gorgeous in this vintage. Freshly cut flowers, plums, spices, licorice and mint are all woven together in this rich, generous wine. The 2007 impresses for its fabulous depth and power. Layers of dark red fruit saturate the palate on the intense finish. Everything is in the right place. The Brunello was aged one year in French oak barrels followed by a second year in cask. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. Medium red. High-pitched aromas of cherry, rose petal, sandalwood and exotic spices. Dense, ripe and primary, with lovely energy and a restrained sweetness. Very fresh, pristine 2007 Brunello, still a bit youthfully tight. The broad finish features a fine dusting of tannins and strong lingering fruit. Pretty savory tones and barbecue aromas combine to create a bold Brunello. Ripe fruit, black pepper, rum cake, black currant and blackberry preserves all appear in the background. Silky-smooth and firm, it show...
