CASTIGLION DEL BOSCO BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO RISERVA 2012 ZODIAC BOAR
The Zodiac series from Castiglion del Bosco reaches its sixth edition, evoking the harmony and balance of a stellar vintage for this Sangiovese. Only 688 bottles in magnum size are available, showcasing a commissioned artwork label in line with previous releases. Winemaker Cecilia Leoneschi makes the blend selection from different parcels, looking for richness, ripe fruit, tobacco and a touch of spice. Its ageing in French oak and concrete tanks brings it to harmony even at this young age, though it’d be a pity to drink now. $1,750 (magnum) from cdbzo[email protected] castigliondelbosco.com (pre-order).
