2012 La Rasina Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Il Divasco (750ml)

Sangiovese from Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy


Dark and brooding, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva il Divasco delivers upfront power and ripeness. This is a warm vintage Brunello with soft and syrupy aromas of blackberry preserves and candied cherry. You feel the heat and the sunshine of the vintage (with 14.5% alcohol). Despite all that upfront lusciousness, the wine is short and less impactful on the mid-palate. In fact, it tastes dry and polished. Only 5,000 bottles were produced.

There's a very impressive sense of depth and richness on the nose of this Brunello Riserva. It shows ample dark cherries and sweet, earthy aromas. The acidity illuminates the mellow, fine-grained tannins and dark cherry flavors. Holds long and even. Try from 2020.
