Review: 2018 Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino DOCG

A classically styled Brunello, this decidedly dense wine unleashes lashings of anise, tanned leather, and notes of raspberry en route to a core that is equal parts balsamic and black cherry. Semi-sweet but tempered with notes of rhubarb and thyme, the finish shifts its focus toward semi-sweet chocolate notes, layered with leathery earth. Complex and worth cellaring for a few years to allow the tannic core to mellow and see where things end up.
