Salvioni Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiola 2012
94 points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, May 2017
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino La Cerbaiola is a beautiful expression with delicate berry flavors that wrap over the palate with polished perfection. The house style at Salvioni prizes ethereal elegance in a manner that few others can achieve within the Brunello appellation. These wines present a new facet each time you return to contemplate the fluid and ever-changing bouquet. Spicy tar, clove and toasted nut appear as almost indistinguishable afterthoughts on the long-lasting finish.
The Salvioni estate opted not to make Rosso di Montalcino in 2015. All of the fruit from the four-hectare vineyard will be dedicated to the production of 2015 Brunello di Montalcino instead. This is shaping up to be an excellent vintage.
