2012 Il Palazzone Brunello di Montalcino DOCG – It’s early days to be judging the 2012. It was only bottled at the end of 2016 and illustrates perfectly the necessity of the obligatory four months of bottle aging for Brunello. The wine shows great complexity and structure.
On the nose; mint, eucalyptus and a little waft of violets; dark fruits abound, backed by forest floor and wet stone. In the mouth there is tobacco, leather and a touch of chocolate just discernable on the long and satisfying finish. The juicy acidity and firm tannins are perfectly balanced.
This is a wine of promise that will benefit enormously from time in the cellar. It has all the austerity and resolute character of traditional Brunello.
