San Felice Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 2007
Impressive depth of fruit on the nose, with dark berries, flowers and blueberries. Full-bodied, with a core of fruit that is impressive and sensual. Silky tannins. Long, long finish. Try it in 2016. This is clearly better than the 2006.
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is a huge wine bursting with dark red cherries, plums, licorice, new leather and spices. This is an especially big, voluminous style built on extroverted fruit and sheer richness, but it all works. The weight of the vintage comes through in the wine-s glycerin. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.
Medium red. Cherry, plum, underbrush, licorice and herbs on the nose; hints at a liqueur-like ripeness. Very sweet and pliant, even glyceral, on entry, but strong, integrated acidity gives the middle palate a penetrating quality. Just a hint of raisiny ripeness here but the wine's liqueur-like sweetness gives it significant early appeal and the stuffing for mid-term development. Finishes with substantial building, ripe tannins and plenty of acidity.
Inky-dark and superconcentrated up to the rim of the wine. Black aromas of coal, licorice, crushed peppercorn, river stone and dark fruit. This is one of those wines that is so big and bold, it's hard to imagine which foods would pair best.
