2002 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

by Il Palazzone on August 13, 2009

TOM HYLAND, USA * * * * Excellent
This small estate, owned by American businessman Richard Parsons, has been on quite a roll as of late. The 2002 is an excellent wine with a deep garnet-light ruby red color and offers a lovely nose of dried cherry, a hint of vanilla and red spice. Medium-full with very good concentration. Nice mid-palate and a graceful finish with lively acidity, good fruit persistence and subtle oak. Enjoy this elegant wine over the next 7-10 years.

Complimenti a Il Palazzone: non solo un Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2001 di grande fruttosità, di grande morbidezza gustativa, ma più ancora un Brunello di Montalcino 2002 di sorprendente valore data la qualità del millesimo di produzione.
