For their 2012 Brunello di Montalcino, Italian producer Amantis brought in the expertise of Paolo Vagaggini, the name behind some of Tuscany's most impressive wines. Paolo knows Sangiovese like no one else, crafting a stunning bottling with impeccable balance and concentration. A well-marbled steak or creamy bowl of mushroom risotto will pair marvelously with this Brunello's grippy tannins, but patience will reward you - this elegant red will continue to improve over the next decade.

Pipe tobacco, black-skinned berry, new leather and a whiff of espresso aromas lead the nose. On the firm chewy palate, taut fine-grained tannins frame dried black cherry, raspberry compote, clove and licorice. Drink 2022–2032.

Extremely aromatic and bright with fresh berry and bark character. Full body, vivid flavors of fruit and fresh acidity. Crisp finish. Pretty wine. Drink or hold.
