#81 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
A classically poised, precise Sangiovese from the region's finest southern terroirs. A bouquet of red roses and wildflowers mixes with dark red fruits on the nose; the mouth is richly endowed with notes of dark chocolate, poached black cherries and a hint of almonds. Tannins while silky are present as this is just an infant in terms of great Brunello—an elegant wine that will reward for years to come.
"This rich red shows plenty of bass notes, in the form of sweet plum and wood smoke, as the wine plays out across the palate. Balanced and juicy, with a moderately firm structure. Fine accents of spice, smoke and tea mark the finish."
"The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, spices, rose petals and sweet red berries. The 2007 impresses for its poise and fabulous overall harmony, especially in the way expressive aromatics and fruit are woven together. I very much admire the wine’s feminine, gracious personality. This is a terrific showing from Collosorbo. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
