The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Villa al Cortile offers a complete picture of Sangiovese from a warm vintage. This wine plays its cards close to its chest and reveals characteristics aromas of wild berry, cherry cola, grilled herb and toasted almond. The bouquet is not too intense. The wine is refined in large oak casks for two years. The quality of the tannins is not totally smooth, but this is a common trait in the Brunellos from this vintage.
