Campogiovanni 2009 Brunello Di Montalcino

Campogiovanni 2009 Brunello Di Montalcino, $39.19-$48.99, 92 points, appeared brick red toward the glass shallows trending a dark red cherry at the core.
Cherries, flowers, and a hint of coffee on the nose were good.
The medium body carried good acidity with strong, but manageable tannin.
Flavors followed the nose with early intense floral representation that declined somewhat with air.
Finished on the trailing palate, mint, black and cayenne peppers, bourbon notes with considerable warmth from the 14.5% alcohol.

  1. D,

    This is going to be included in my upcomign report on 2009 Brunello. I was plesantly surprised by this wine. And as for a small teaser, I'll even say that I liked it more than you! Good note........


    1. John: I'm not surprised! I found that after being opened for 12 hours that this wine did improve, but alas, my review was in stone or maybe I was just petrified ;-)
