Donatella Cinelli Colombini 2011 Brunello Di Montalcino (DOCG), $46.74-$57.99, 93 points, poured a deep maroon with a broad clear wine ring at the glass wall of heavy draping.
Aromatic floral black cherry, roses, cloves, marjoram, and earth notes were lovely.
Medium-bodied with exuberant acids, fine supportive tannins, and flavors reflective of the aromas plus leather and a pervasive Christmas Fruitcake were excellent.
Finished long on violets, warm spices, accelerating tannins, and a potent 14.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my spaghetti in a tomato/basil meat sauce.
