L'Oca Ciuca Brunello di Montalcino 2009 750ml

L'Oca Ciuca Brunello di Montalcino

The Sangiovese "Grosso" is called Brunello in Montalcino. It's here in Tuscany where this grape variety expresses its best qualities Ripe fruit, spices with a core of firm tannin, elegant texture and long finish that make Brunello a classic, long lived, great wine. Sweet cherry and plum flavors are offset by licorice, spice and a hint of tar in this structured red. This is dense, showing some grain to the muscular tannins, ending with a long, spice-filled aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2026. 750 cases imported.

Americans John and Harry Mariani created this estate from scratch beginning in 1978, hiring enologist Ezio Rivella to oversee the winemaking. The work was completed in 1984, and today 2,400 acres of the 7,100 acre property are planted to grapes. Made from 100 percent Sangiovese grown in several estate vineyards, this Brunello spends two and a half years in large oak casks before being bottled. It`s the highest rated Brunello normale from Banfi to date.

Not bad, but a bit bitter. Will let sit for a year or so and see what happens.
