The 2012 Cerretalto is a wine with a strong charisma, in which the main traits of every Cerretalto joined together: richness, pleasantness together with freshness and elegance. It shows a very young and brilliant ruby red. The nose is mineral and charismatic, with an intense red fruit melted with chocolate, liquorice and followed by hints of citrus, smoky notes and the unmistakable graphite. Long and wide in the mouth, this wine has a thick and dense tannic texture enhanced by the finesse and silkiness. Endless aftertaste. It should be opened 3 hours in advance at the right service temperature.

Flavors of medicinal herbs, juniper, macerated cherry, plum, tobacco and spice are the hallmarks of this intense red, which is ripe and concentrated, yet sleek and focused. Spice notes chime in on the long, minerally and firmly tannic finish. Best from 2023 through 2040. 831 cases made.

The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto offers a prolonged, flowing and carefully massaged drinking experience that drapes over the senses with some studied intensity and lots of intriguing complexity. This wine nails that perfect balance between power and elegance (that elusive exchange that so many winemakers hope to achieve) with effortless precision. Bold cherry fruit and spice are tightly woven together. In the mouth, the wine shows texture, depth and succulence. Generally speaking, this is not my favorite vintage in Montalcino, but this wine suddenly made me forget that thought.

The density is so impressive in this great single-vineyard wine of Casanova. It's full yet agile at the same time. Shows such integrated tannins and fresh acidity at the finish. Energized and focused. Tangy and citrusy. Mineral undertone. One of the great Brunellos of 2012. Better in 2022.
