Eric Guido, October 2022
The 2012 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa has a vivid ruby color. It shows no decline, with a remarkably fresh bouquet of dusty rose, wild strawberries, rosemary and hints of worn leather. There’s a pleasant inner sweetness that blends with its soft contours and ripe wild berry fruits to create a jovial and energetic character within. The tannins are still slightly grippy and drying, yet this maintains wonderful momentum, finishing with hints of licorice and balsamic spice. There are many years of positive evolution in store here, yet there’s also no harm in enjoying the 2012 today. While not indicated on the label, La Casa is a high-elevation vineyard on the hill of Montosoli.
