San Felice Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino Il Quercione Riserva 2013
|Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
Vanilla and spicy oak aromas overlay the core of cherry and plum flavors in this beefy red. The overall impression is of spicy fruitcake, with vanilla, cinnamon, plum and cherry raisin notes, accented by a touch of rum. Stays long and balanced in the end. Best from 2023 through 2040.
Dark red. Ripe but refined aromas of red cherry, coffee, potpourri and cinnamon. Fresh red cherry and strawberry pick up alkaline and stony accents, along with more notes of coffee, on a firm palate and them follow-through on the long refined back end in bracing fashion. A lovely Riserva.
