CAS­TIGLION DEL BOSCO BRUNELLO DI MON­TAL­CINO RIS­ERVA 2012 ZO­DIAC BOAR

Epicure - - CELLAR CHOICE -

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).
