Bellaria - Brunello di Montalcino 'Assunto' 2016
The Bellaria – Brunello di Montalcino ‘Assunto’ 2016 is a tremendous example of a classic Italian red wine. It has a deep, ruby-red hue that is highlighted by slight garnet highlights driven by age. On the nose, this complex red displays intense aromas of berries, dried cherries, earthy nuances, tobacco, and leather. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine has a supple texture with plenty of flavorful notes of ripe cherries, meaty earthiness and a kiss of smoky oak. The tannins are well-integrated and carry a medium level of acidity that adds structure to the wine’s lush body. The finish is long and savory with an overall depth and complexity that is noteworthy.
