International Wine Cellar – Steven Tanzer Tasting 2012

BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO 2007

Scopone 2007 Brunello di Montalcino

Bright medium red. Spicy red fruits, mocha and leather on the very
ripe, liqueur-like nose; showed a more roasted character with air. Plump and supple but a bit aggressively warm, in need of a bit more grip and lift for its fleshiness. The broad finish shows slightly dry tannins and modest verve.
Score – 87 points
