2012 CASTIGLION DEL BOSCO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

$55.00 $47.99 $47.99

When a particular region experiences a profound and highly rated vintage, you can bet there will be a lot of high-scoring wines to come out of it.  When that region is one of the most iconic in the world like Montalcino, Italy, the demand for wines of that vintage can be an unstoppable force.  The 2012 was one of those rare and historic vintages and locating 2012 Brunellos that aren’t already sold out can be a daunting task.  Then finding them at an affordable price can feel nearly impossible.  The average price of the nearly three dozen 94 Point 2012 vintage Brunellos rated by the Wine Spectator averaged over $100/btl retail.  At less than half of that. Castiglion Del Bosco’s Brunello is a stunning value and of course it won’t be around for long.

With history dating back to 1,100 A.D., Castiglion del Bosco is the literal definition of Old World.  The 2012 is profoundly expressive, detailed and highly nuanced.  They style is unusually masculine with firm structure and rich layers of mineral laced black fruits, dried rose petals, iron and wild lavender.  I highly recommend securing a case of this 94-96 Point Brunello.

Description

From James Suckling, “This shows pure and fresh fruit that many others don’t have. Also, there are plenty of linear tannins. Precise and beautiful. Medium to full body. Persistent finish. Better in 2019″ 
96 Points
From The Wine Spectator, “A bright, cherry-laced red, accented by iron, earth, tar and tobacco notes. Though lean and tight on the finish, this is lively, with a lingering aftertaste of cherry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2019 through 2032.”
