"Now that our local suppliers and importing partners are able to get back out in the market and make tasting appointments, they are pulling great wines to refresh our palates. From deGrazia Imports, represented here by a good friend of ours, we tried a killer line up of wines, with every single bottle ringing in well under $60 and packing in serious drinkability and value.
This bottle is a selection of the estate's best barrels and parcels of Sangiovese. 2012 was a fantastic vintage for Brunello, staying dry and warm allowing for slow maturation of the grapes. With many current releases of Brunello being the young and tasty 2015 and 2016 vintage, it was awesome to find a supply on this 2012 from an outstanding estate with some extra bottle age on it! A deal indeed." - Clare

Brunello di Montalcino 2012 is intense and elegant. Traditionally vinified. After two weeks of natural, spontaneous fermentation the wine is transferred into 30Hl and 54 Hl untoasted French oak casks, where it ages for 38 months. Minimum bottle aging 6 months. The nose is intense with ripe red fruits aromas enhanced by black pepper and licorice. The mouth is well balanced with persistent tannins and red fruits aromas with a hint of spices. Persistent finish.
Superb with aged cheese and game meat.
