Tiezzi Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Soccorso 2005
|Region||Italy, Tuscany, Brunello di Montalcino|
Wine EnthusiastHere's a dark and concentrated Brunello with thick aromas of spice, smoke and tobacco lavished over a solid core of black fruit. The nose is definitely on the oak-driven side but the mouth is bursting with fresh fruit notes. It makes for an excellent ensemble.
Wine AdvocateThe single-vineyard 2005 Brunello di Montalcino Vigna Soccorso is a pretty, supple offering with excellent delineation in its dark red fruit, spices and minerals. Today the Soccorso comes across as a bit lean, yet the wine nevertheless offers outstanding balance. The tannins remain a touch firm, but another year or two of bottle age should help the wine come together. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.
Wine SpectatorOffers sweet berry and plum on the nose and palate, with hints of citrus fruit. Medium-bodied, with lovely fruit and a balance of fine tannins. Drink now.
