Val di Suga Poggio al Granchio Brunello di Montalcino 2016
Intense ruby-red color with violet glints. Explodes on the nose with fresh fruit reminiscent of cherries in spirit, red currants, blackberries and myrtle. On the palate, an unmistakable subtle entry with very long, silky tannins. A sapid, mineral finish that only this area can give Sangiovese. Aromas of roasted coffee bean, licorice and menthol form the nose along with hints of rose petal. Full bodied and elegantly structured, the smooth, enveloping palate features sour cherry, blood orange, espresso, star anise and toasted hazelnut set against tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2024-2036.
