2011 Brunello di Montalcino, Gianni Brunelli

Laura’s 2011 is a beautifully ripe Sangiovese, with lovely sweet fruit that remains fresh and juicy. Laura herself commented that the wine had ‘very good elegance.’ Who are we to disagree.

TASTING NOTES

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is soft, pliant and open-knit, with good freshness and aromatic lift for the year. Crushed flowers, sweet red stone fruits and gently spiced notes wrap around the silky, mid-weight finish. In 2011, the estate's Brunello is a decidedly gracious wine that clearly benefits from combination of fruit from both the northern and southern sectors of Montalcino. The 2011 spent a bit more than two years in cask.
