Ciacci Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Santa Caterina d'Oro




2012 Ciacci Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Santa Caterina d'Oro...$132.98

This gorgeous wine opens with alluring aromas of sweet pipe tobacco, underbrush, new leather, truffle, plum and eucalyptus. Smooth and full-bodied yet elegant, the savory, juicy palate delivers crushed Marasca cherry, raspberry preserve, licorice and menthol alongside polished, enveloping tannins. Fresh acidity provides impeccable balance while an orange zest note lifts the finish.
