2007LaTorre2007 La Torre, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Tuscany, Italy.
This beautiful, old school, Brunello is really a wonderful expression of place and tradition, this pure and layered 2007 is well crafted and lengthy with earth, spice and sexy fruit. The La Torre starts a bit austere, but opens quickly revealing red currants, bramble berry, rose petals, incense and grilled herbs before a rich palate of cherry, plum and strawberry fruit with hints of licorice, cedar and lavender, along with a bit of savory elements like hosin, soy and wild mushroom. The finish is back to lush fruit and has a long aftertaste, this wine shows elegant class with just a hint of rustic charm, best to drink from 2014-2020. This Tuscan beauty is pretty rare, so be sure to search it out, it was one of the best 2007’s I tasted and the price is not insane, though not cheap.
