96 pt. BRUNELLO BARGAIN!
SAN FELICE 2006 BRUNELLO di MONTALCINO
I ordered a case of this wine based on The Wine Spectator review – not that I always agree with the WS, but the pre-arrival price was very attractive for a good Brunello. Other reviews have been great and the wine is sold-out at the importer, and the Oregon distributor. If more becomes available, I’m sure it will be at a higher price. The wine was also rated “outstanding” by The Wine Advocate who said:
“The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino Campogiovanni is one the bigger, bolder wines of the year. The fruit shows impressive depth and richness. Dark cherries, new leather, black olives and toasted French oak follow through on the building, intense finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.”
I have not tasted this wine – if you do not buy it all, maybe I will!
