Castello Romitorio's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a dark ruby color with beautiful garnet-like intensity. The bouquet offers similar stamina and vigor, with thick layers of dark cherry and blackberry. Spice, tobacco and cola also play big roles in this ensemble. The bouquet ultimately offers more immediacy than the mouthfeel, which is still tightly wound and compact at this young stage in the wine's life. This tells me that the wine has plenty of wiggle room for a successful aging future.
