Tasting Notes

From 100% Sangiovese Grosso from single vineyards in Montalcino. This Baby Brunello is one of the best value wines from the area. Lèonus is sangiovese of natural and effortless appeal. With pocketed thoughts of Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino in mind you can extrapolate with elastic, proverbial stretch and easily wind up here. It's simple really, straightforward and noted as a gulpable mouthful of rocks tumbling in wet concrete. The great round acidity equalizer acts for mostly northern Montalcino fruit plus 20 percent from the south. Tommaso Cortonesi comes at it with a threefold selection; at harvest, in fermentation and from élevage. It's entry level so just drink it. The fruit is darker and deprived of firm astringency, spent four months in 3000L Slavonian oak and three months in bottle. For every day, especially with antipasti.

"Love the lifted scent of rosemary that leads the charge of flavours. Also expect currant, raspberry fruit, nicely integrated oak and a hint of meaty salami. Quite exotic aromatics. It is medium-full bodied, lively, spicy and warm on the palate. The balance is very good with juicy acidity, warm alcohol and slightly gritty tannin all in proportion. The length is very good to excellent."
