Campogiovanni 2010 Brunello Di Montalcino, $42.49-$49.99, 93 points, poured a deep ruby-red trending brick-red toward the leggy glass edge and broad clear wine ring.
Aromatic red cherry and soft crème brûlée notes were good.
This very dry red wine, enshrined in a medium-plus body, was marked by firm grainy tannins, near hyper-acidity (not a complaint), intense bourbon notes, truffle, tar, mint, and cherry cordial flavors.
Finished long on a hot 14.5% alcohol and cayenne pepper.
I believe that this wine will appeal strongly with whisky drinkers, and less with fruit-loving Merlot fans (STO, I know).
