This purple-red wine opens with intense aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant and cherries. It is rich and full-bodied on the palate, with soft flavors that echo the fruity aromas. This wine is well-balanced with a pleasing finish.
Dried flowers and dried mushrooms with hints of berries on the nose, follows through to a full body, with silky and polished tannins and a nutmeg, milk chocolate and berry aftertaste. Better after 2014.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Cantine Leonardo is an inviting wine graced with open, radiant fruit and soft, engaging personality. Sweet spices and vanilla add complexity on the rich, creamy finish. This is an excellent choice for near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.
Brunello Cantine Leonardo opens with loads of cinnamon and nutmeg with background tones of clove, earth, pressed violet and syrupy cassis. The wine closes with a long, spicy fade and a balanced touch of cleansing acidity.
