Tenuta di Oliveto Brunello di Montalcino Italy 2006
The nose showed sweet, dark red fruits with spice, undergrowth and herbs. On the palate, it was balanced and smooth with red berries and notes of licorice. Its large structure took control into the woody, red berry finish. The ’06 is truly the yin to the ‘07’s yang, two consecutive vintages that are equally enjoyable for completely different reasons.
