Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino 2004

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

Opened about one hour beforehand. The first impression I got with this beautiful wine was the great depth of character on the nose. There is a solid focus of dusty black cherry, dried herbs, anise, sweet leather, and more. The level of complexity in the nose makes labeling some aspects difficult. The palate is savory, with grilled meat and fragrant herb notes, along with solid black cherry and some aromatics on the fruit. The acidity is nicely mouthwatering and balances well with the fine, clean tannins. The finish is long and lovely with dried black cherry and underbrush. This wine strikes a great balance between finesse and rusticity and showed no signs of fading after three hours open. A very well built, classic Brunello. 94 Pts.

Il Palazzone is extremely small, making under 1.000 cases of Brunello di Montalcino DOCG with the utmost focus on quality. The vineyards are located in three different subzones of Montalcino, thereby bringing to each bottle different aspects of Montalcino's renowned terroir. Agricoltura responsabile and precision viticulture in the vineyards mean low yields, healthy fruit and farming without the use of chemical pesticides.  Grapes are hand picked at harvest and the estate has been fermenting in wood since the 2011 vintage. All Brunellos spend over 40 months aging in large Slavonian oak barrels, and the wines are marked by distinct balance, elegance and austerity.    Read less
