This year, the launch of Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2012 Year of the Boar is an extraordinary and unique expression of a 5-star vintage, characterized by great harmony, balance and persistence. James Suckling rated this incredible wine with 98 points:
“A decadent and exotic red on the nose with Indian spices, black truffles, plums and fresh leather. Full-bodied, very chewy and deep with polished and poised tannins, giving this wine energy and excitement. Just a baby, but a great wine. Better in 2022, but who can wait?”
