Pretty savory tones and barbecue aromas combine to create a bold Brunello. Ripe fruit, black pepper, rum cake, black currant and blackberry preserves all appear in the background. Silky-smooth and firm, it shows a clean, sharp, bold close.
Brunello Fossacolle opens with a darkly concentrated color and aromas of tobacco, spice, chocolate and meaty, pulpy black fruit. The wine presents a bigger, inky style and shows good depth and density on the palate thanks to its extracted consistency, creaminess and overall intensity.
This beautiful riserva opens with notes of dark cherry and chocolate followed by brambly tones of forest berry and cassis. There’s a very dry and astringent quality to the mouthfeel with pretty notes of roasted espresso bean and candied fruit that add a little extra roundness to the finish.
Riesci is a super Tuscan blend of Cabernet, Petit Verdot and Merlot with lovely density and opulence backed by bright aromas of mature berry fruit, cherry cola, blackberry pie, leather and dark chocolate. It’s a black, inky wine with solid tannins that will cut through succulent steak.
Fossacolle delivers both delicate complexity to the nose and long-lasting power to the palate. Aromas include blackberry, peppercorn, licorice and cedar wood. The mouth is awarded an extremely rich texture with velvety layers and cushiony soft tannins.
Fossacolle’s Brunello is distinguished by a chewy texture that is backed by dark concentration and plump berry fruit. The cherry and blackberry layers are thick and soft, but don’t let them fool you; Sangiovese’s characteristic acidity keeps the palate polished and pristine.
Bright and fresh with buoyant aromas of plum, blackberry and mature cherry, Fossacolle’s 2005 Brunello (by vintner Sergio Marchetti) is a dark and concentrated wine with impressive aromatic depth. The mouthfeel is lean and compact with firm, polished tannins.
Tight menthol, currant berry, cedar wood and dusty mineral notes eventually waft off a wine that seems reluctant to open at first. The structure is solid without being hard, with espresso, leather and a powerful, dry finish. Imported by Vias Imports.
