Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2016

$65

A wild and unbridled version, as much about the woodsy pine, wild herb and iron flavors as the brooding black cherry and blueberry fruit. Long and resonant, with muscular tannins and lively acidity lending support. Best from 2025 through 2042. 8,334 cases made, 4,000 cases imported.
