Tenuta Buon Tempo Brunello di Montalcino 2012


From the 2012 vintage, this is a very good expression of sangiovese from Tenuta Buon Tempo in Brunello di Montalcino in Tuscany.  A medium intensity ruby colour in the glass, the wine opens to aromas of chocolate, earth, licorice and dried cranberries.  The palate is full bodied, with quite firm but very fine tannins, high acidity and a long, earthy and savoury finish.  This wine can be approached now (a good decant is recommended) or cellared and approached over the next decade.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 14.5%. Price: $80.
