Campo Alle Noci Brunello Di Montalcino 2017
|Italy, Abruzzo, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo
|Campo Alle Noci
The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Campo Alle Noci comes across as earthy yet also rustic in style, with animal musk and undergrowth giving way to ripe cherries. Its textures are silky in feel, offset by a twang of sour citrus and tart red berries that give way to hints of coffee and cedar. Balsam herbs and purple-tinged florals linger over a coating of gruff tannin. While I can find pleasure in the 2017's aromatic profile, the Campo alle Noci simply lacks dimension on the palate.
