Noch etwas verschlossene Blume mit Beeren-, Trockenblumen- und Ledernoten; Kompakte Textur, akzentuierte Säure, die Tannine geschliffen, das Finale klassisch-elegant. Zuverlässig und mit Potenzial.
Still somewhat closed flower with notes of berries, dried flowers and leather; Compact texture, accentuated acidity, the tannins polished, the finale classically elegant. Reliable and with potential.
Giovane nel carattere esuberante mostra note di amarene, more e mirtilli selvatici. Corpo pieno, tannini vellutati di qualità superba ed un finale preciso ed armonico nella sua deliziosa essenza. Meglio dal 2021.
Rich and opulent aromas of crushed berries, meat, earth and fresh flowers. It’s full-bodied and dense with intense, ripe tannins, as well as wild-fruit character. Wet-earth and crushed-tile undertones. Extremely long and flavorful. Give it time to open and mellow. Great single-vineyard wine. Try after 2023
While the straight Brunello di Montalcino has a somewhat jovial and immediate feel, the 2016 Vigna Montosoli takes things to a darker and much more serious place. Black earth,minerals tar and licorice slowly give way to crushed cherries and balsamic spice. It’s velvety and deeply textural, ushering in a compact and almost-weighty display of ripe primary fruits, yet all perfectly framed by brillant acids which maintain balance. There’s lovely inner sweetness here, that I can,’t wait to experience once its grippy tannins resolve. The 2016 finishes on structure, further complicated by a coating of concentrated tart wild berries and hints of licorice
