Origin Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino
Brand Tenuta La Fuga
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
The 2017 vintage is characterised by hints of berries, orange peel, flowers and cedar but also walnut and wet leaves. A full-bodied wine with firm and velvety tannins and a juicy texture on the palate. A concentrated taste and a long length. Our "Villa di Nozzole" suggests to pair the wine with pork stuffed with duck and wild fennel seeds.

Tenuta la Fuga is part of a larger group of wine estates in Tuscany (Ambrogio & Giovanni Folonari) that makes textbook wines that reflect their region of origin. This can be said of the 2017 Brunello di Montalcino that does not color outside the predetermined lines for a Sangiovese from Montalcino. With fruit from a hot vintage, the wine shows cassis and dark currant aromas with some dried herbs and crushed flowers. It delivers a pretty mineral note on the polished finish. Production is 22,000 bottles.

Aromas of scorched earth, porcini and oak lead the nose along with roasted coffee bean and eucalyptus oil. On the concentrated palate, the heat of evident alcohol dominates licorice, vanilla, dried cherry and steeped prune.
