Palazzo 2006 Brunello di Montalcino, $69.99, 93 points, is a deep garnet color, with a massive bouquet of flowers, earth, and cinnamon, the texture is medium bodied with considerable glycerol, lip-smacking acidity and powerful tannin, the flavors are layered and complex, with floral plum and red cherry, with a palpably persistent finish of eucalyptus and menthol on a bed of spice.
This wine cut through our pepper-cheddar-burgers like a hot knife through. . .
If you are interested in this kind of wine, I should tell you that all the advice I've seen is that this wine is best from 2014-2025, but the reviewers had to taste this Brunello, and I couldn't resist.
I forgot to mention that this wine is 14.5% alcohol, which is a bit more than a typical Sangiovese wine, and you might have noticed that you enjoyed this Brunello way more as well.
