Marchesato degli Aleramici, Brunello di Montalcino 2001

Aleramici Brunello 2001 #1Aleramici Brunello 2001

Full, immature ruby red color.  Fresh, classically styled nose: dried red cherry, crushed red raspberry, turned earth, mineral.   Very nice, very traditional secondaries of leather, tobacco, dried autumn leaf and native spices as it develops in glass and in bottle.   Medium-full body.   Firm but ripe tannins.  Good acidity.  Clean, pure and balanced.   A good example.   Not a blockbuster; not trying to be one either.  Now – 2020.
