San Filippo Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere 2004
Perfumed and beautiful, with flowers and berries. Ripe strawberries on the nose that turn to currants. Full body, with fine tannins and a clean finish. Wonderful texture here. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold.
Loads of balsam intensity and an array of dried herb, red fruit, wild berry, cedar wood and forest floor aromas. It’s very full and generous in the mouth, with firm, but polished tannin.
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino Le Lucere is richer, deeper and fleshier than the regular bottling, but in 2007 the Lucere also possesses terrific balance, something that the 2006 never had. Dark red cherries, flowers, mint and spices wrap around the intense, polished finish.
