Campogiovanni Brunello di Montalcino 2006 Wine Review (NW)
Gorgeous sweet cherry and spice on the nose
Full bodied on the palate
Dense finish that's earthy with red berries, tobacco, and spice
Excellent wine! I could have waited longer with this one, but it didn't disappoint with a few years of cellaring. It has an amazing nose that's fragrant and full of power, emanating from the glass with remarkable strength and purity. It's also extremely dense with a long finish that's classic Brunello.
The wine was released at $50, and was listed at number four on the Wine Spectator Top 100 in 2011. I mention that because it generally means you won't find it sitting on store shelves anywhere. If you happen to source a bottle, give it plenty of air and plan to linger over this wine. Raise a glass!
