Il Palazzone Rosso del Palazzone NV

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

What great QPR! I didn't check the varietal first, expecting this "Rosso" to have grapes other than, or added to, Sangiovese. I was wrong, and knew it on my first inhale of the nose. Pure Sangiovese, and I dare say Brunello-like. The nose was deep and solid with red cherry and black cherry notes, earth, saddle leather, and some suggestion of allspice. Later on the nose, aromatic sandalwood began to show. The palate was just as nice as the nose, with a pleasing earthy, cherry core that hovered at the mid-palate, and roasted fruit notes (not like heat damage) that lingered nicely on the finish. Somewhat elegant in texture. Light to medium weight, with good depth and some complexity. Excellent balance, showing well from beginning to end.

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

Cherry earthy aromas a little cinnamon spice. Very beautiful nose. Lovely palate as well. Light to med bodied, red berry fruits with a bit of red currants and delicate rustic components.
