Villa Le Prata Brunello di Montalcino 2011
This 100% Sangiovese Grosso is aged one year in French oak tonneaux and 3 years in 60 gallon Slavonian barrels. It is both smooth and curvaceous with aromas of cherry, Spanish cedar, licorice, dried rosemary, and roasted almond. This wine fills the bottle with mature richness and depth. The palate is greeted with dried cherries, fresh fruits, and dark chocolate. It finishes with great length and strong tannins. This wine will stand up to gamey meats, steak, and spicy pasta dishes. It is 13.5% alcohol and is best decanted for an hour.
