San Felice Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino Rmp 92 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"A huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, licorice, new leather and spices. This is an especially big, voluminous style built on extroverted fruit and sheer richness, but it all works...92" WA 4/12 "Impressive depth of fruit on the nose, with dark berries, flowers and blueberries. Full-bodied, with a core of fruit that is impressive and sensual. Silky tannins. Long, long finish. Try it in 2016. This is clearly better than the 2006....94." www.jamessuckling.com 1/12 "Medium red. Cherry, plum, underbrush, licorice and herbs on the nose; hints at a liqueur-like ripeness. Very sweet and pliant, even glyceral, on entry, but strong, integrated acidity gives the middle palate a penetrating quality. Just a hint of raisiny ripeness here but the wine's liqueur-like sweetness gives it significant early appeal and the stuffing for mid-term development. Finishes with substantial building, ripe tannins and plenty of acidity...91" IWC 08/12

Ein ausgewogener, gehaltvoller und nachhaltiger Rotwein. Granatrot. Mittelkräftiges, komplexes Bouquet. Dazu kommen Kirsche, Dörrpflaume, Erdbeermarmelade und Rosine. Ergänzt wird die Fruchtpalette von etwas Gewürznelke, Kakao/Schokolade, Rauch, Lederduft und leicht erdigen Noten. Im Gaumen trocken. Säure und Gerbstoff sind noch leicht präsent. Insgesamt aber weich, füllig und harmonisch in der Struktur. Wiederholt die komplexe Aromatik im Rückgeruch recht präzise. Mittellanger Abgang.
