2006 Campogiovanni (San Felice) Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese
Prior bottle was almost 13 months ago and unfortunately, this bottle didn't show as well. Nose continues to show black cherry, earth, vanilla and minerals with the vanilla a bit more noticeable than before even though the wine overall was nowhere near as aromatic. Between medium and full bodied with black cherry and blackberry upfront, but only hints of black raspberry through the middle. Mid-body also didn't have the depth it showed previously. Tart black cherry along with earth, spices and minerals on the backside and through the finish. The main issue was the acidity which seemed noticeably out of balance with the fruit and took a lot away from the wine. Given the thinner mid-body, the dominance of the acidity throughout and the declining aromatics, I suspect this was a flawed bottle (hence no rating). I couldn't detect anything overt, but find it hard to believe this wine could've changed so much in just over a year. Just to be sure, I'll open my last bottle later this year to confirm.
