Castiglion del Bosco, Brunello di Montalcino 2014

RRP £39

A dollop of cream on the nose gives way to bright cherry notes. The palate is equally bright and fresh: red cherry and earth, with a slight acidic tang early on, then muted dark fruit, black cherry and raspberry leaf. The tannins are soft and sweet, though a touch rustic. There’s a good wash of juice at the end, but the finish isn’t as long as you’d hope. This is a straightforward, unspectacular but honest wine from a very difficult vintage.
