Interesting smoky notes – like chargrilled peaches and plums. Sweet and spicy red berry and cherry aromas and flavours mingle with lemon peel and bergamot. Balanced and refreshing.

Tasting Note

Aromas of watermelon and cherry. Some citrus, too. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. More delicate yet firm style of the vintage. Drink now.

Crocedimezzo 2013 Brunello di Montalcino

90Points

Enticing scents suggesting wild red berry, forest floor, rose and a whiff of new leather delicately waft out of the glass. It's ethereal, displaying sour cherry, pomegranate and a hint of white pepper set against racy acidity and taut, refined tannins. Some may find this too delicate but if you like wines with finesse and restraint, you'll love it once it reaches full maturity. Drink after 2023.

Crocedimezzo 2014 Rosso di Montalcino Palish ruby. Very subdued on the nose and super-fresh

and almost linear on the palate. Light of weight, but with proper length. Delicious. The perfect

summer red. (WS)Drink 2016-2018

Brunello 2012 – a five - star dilemma


Written by   Walter Speller   31 Jan 2017

 

Crocedimezzo 2012 Brunello di Montalcino:

 

Tasted blind.

Maturing, mid ruby with bricky rim.

Stalky and reductive on the nose and still quite closed on the palate. No immediate gratification here, although the fruit is concentrated, elegant and with fine powdery tannins.

Crocedimezzo 2012 Brunello di Montalcino

 

89  Points

 

Delicate wild berry, underbrush, clove and grilled herb scents waft from the glass. The palate is ethereal and light-bodied, offering red cherry, pomegranate, and cinnamon flavors with a touch of game. Tangy acidity and supple tannins make it approachable now. Drink through 2020.

 


 

 

Crocedimezzo 2012 Riserva (Brunello di Montalcino)

91 Points

 

Delicate enticing aromas of woodland berry, pressed rose, pipe tobacco, leather and wild herb waft out of the glass. Reflecting the nose, the elegant palate offers Marasca cherry, wild raspberry and ground clove framed in polished tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance. It's linear, subtle and already enjoyable. Best 2019–2025.

Tasting Notes

  

A delicate and refined Brunello with dried berry, cedar and chocolate character.

Medium body, fresh finish. Lacks some depth of fruit for such a great vintage. Drink or hold.

TASTING NOTES:

 

Auch so ein Klassiker fun Eleunde eines traditionsbewussten Brunello: feinwurzige Nase mit Noten von Beeren und Leder: am Gaumen saftig, die Gerbstoffe kompakt und gut eingebunden, lebendige Saure, die den Wein tragt. Traditionelle Machart, von grosser Eleganz.


 

 

 

2010 Brunello di Montalcino: a perfect 60-60-60

  

Written by   Walter Speller   21 Jan 2015

 

Crocedimezzo 2010 Brunello di Montalcino:

 

Just mid ruby with orange rim.

Tight cherry note with a hint of leather and iron.

Embryonic, energetic cherry fruit with grainy tannins clinging to it.

Traditional yet complex, although the leathery note might become more prominent with

age…

Crocedimezzo, Riserva 2010 Brunello di MontalcinoTasted blind. Very heavy bottle! Maturing

ruby with orange rim. Prettty nose of sour cherry and with hints of undergrowth. Seems older

than it is. Supple palate but the fruit fades a little and the acidity becomes dominant.

Pressed flowers, incense a touch of oregano on the nose. Starts low-key on the palate, then opens up,

big and powerful with rich, plummy fruit. Punchy finish with glossy tannins and notes of white pepper and herbs.
