San Felice Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni 2010
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Black cherry, black currant, cedar and tobacco flavors highlight this firm, dense red. This has the fruit, structure and harmony to develop, with a juicy finish and a lingering wild herb and mineral aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2033. 7,083 cases made.
Perfect for pairing with grilled meat, white beans or hearty pasta dishes, this bright Rosso di Montalcino opens with notes of plush cherry, with almond, spice, leather and tobacco. The mouthfeel is characterized by toasted oak notes and bright acidity.
The 2010 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni opens to oaky tones and overtly ripe fruit. The wine is slightly overdone in places, especially the palate where it feels sticky and chewy. Wood-driven tones of cinnamon, clove and vanilla add thick layers at the back. Sweet oak and syrupy cherry fruit characterize the opulent close. Ultimately, this wine is too much of a good thing.
