Cavalier Cortesi Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2015

Brunello di Montalcino is an Italian red wine region that should not be overlooked. Specialising in Sangiovese, it is known for making full bodied wines that spend quite a bit of time in oak. This wine from Cavalier Cortesi is a great example.

Aged for 30 months in large oak vats, the flavours have had plenty of time to integrate and the tannins have become smooth and velvety. Subtle notes of cherry and plum are supported by savoury truffle and sandalwood aromas. There is a bit of spice and vanilla from the oak ageing, however, because of the size of the vessels it is not heavy handed and is in harmony with the rest of the wine.
