Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino is a steady and tight interpretation with wild aromas of underbrush, white cherry, grilled herb, licorice and spice. The ensemble is balanced and fresh. This Brunello offers a thin and compact mouthfeel that could fall short in the future. For that reason, I would suggest a more immediate drinking window. You don't need to wait in order to enjoy this wine.
