Sporting a new label design, the 2011 Brunello di Montalcino represents a philosophical divide from previous vintages. In the past, Castiglion del Bosco was focused on soft and immediate Brunellos for near-term consumption. Despite the warm conditions of the 2011-growing season, this wine shows far more elegance, nuance and grace than expected. The bouquet is redolent of wild berry, cola and grilled herb. The tannins are silky but long in terms of persistence.
