Young but Yum!
Silvio Nardi Brunello di Montalcino 2012, Tuscany, Italy (£30-£35 Fine & Rare Wines, Tannico)
Starts off tight, oaky and tannic, intense but almost impenetrable. Then with time the fruit emerges: gorgeous voluptuous, cherry, berry and ripe blackcurrant, with a touch of herbs and even a hint of orange peel. The toasty oak doesn’t exactly fade with time, it’s more that the wine grows to suppress it. Young, tight and confident, lovely wine with huge potential. G-
