Collosorbo Brunello: “A Significant Premium on Elegance”

Aug 31, 2016

The Wine Advocate‘s Monica Larner is wowed by recent Brunello releases from our friends at Tenuta Collosorbo. Both of these wines are IN STOCK! But going fast…

2011 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino
…a bright and cheerful side of this warm vintage. The wine presents an easy and forthcoming aromatic profile with upfront tones of black cherry and dried blackberry. It offers good balance thanks to subtle tones of leather and spice that serve to flesh out and widen the bouquet. The quality of fruit is simple, slightly sweet and definitely on the ripe side. This is another good near-term Brunello…
2010 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
…a silky and smooth rendition that puts a significant premium on elegance. The wine is bursting with the power and the deeply etched character of the vintage, but it also reveals a softer and less obvious side that comes forth thanks to the subtle and seamless integration of fruit. It shows beautiful textural finesse.
