2012 Brunello di Montalcino (Armilla)

Armilla, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy 2012

{organic} 100% Sangiovese

RICH RED CHERRY, BERRY & BAKING SPICE, ELEGANT & ROBUST

Armilla owner, Ofelia Perugini, runs her small estate (the area which qualifies for Brunello di Montalcino is less than 5 acres) with the help of her daughters and grandchildren. Her husband, Silverio, passed away thirty years ago - before they had sold any Brunello. They honor his memory with this fantastic offering, full of ripe, concentrated red cherry and cranberry, hints of clove, nutmeg, and leather, all supported with soft tannins and balanced with terrific acidity. This deserves to be decanted 20 minutes before drinking.

Serving suggestion: Rigatoni & homemade tomato sauce w/ boar meatballs. Meaty ragu w/ rosemary over pappardelle.
