Podere Sante Marie Brunello di Montalcino Colleoni 2008

Thoroughly enjoyable Brunello made in an elegant style. This was had alongside pasta with bolognese and paired nicely. The nose shows lovely red berry fruits, anise, mint, dried floral notes, tobacco, and earth. The palate is made in an elegant and finessed vein with minimal tannins, nice juicy acidity, and very good balance. Finishes nicely. Certainly not a mind blowing wine, but a high quality wine and very enjoyable, especially if you enjoy the more elegant aspect of Sangiovese.  Consumed 8/26/17
