ready-keep2008 Brunello di Montalcino, Salvioni (La Cerbaiola)

Product: HK800B
  • Vinous
  • Ready, but will improve


The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is a terrific example of the year. Medium in body, and graceful, the 2008 is laced with an attractive mosaic of dark red cherries, savory herbs, licorice, flowers in tobacco. Naturally, the 2008 doesn't deliver the explosiveness or head-spinning appeal of the 2006 or 2007, but it will give Salvioni fans a fix while those iconic vintages age. An expressive, layered finish rounds things out nicely. - Antonia Galloni
