Argiano, Brunello di Montalcino, vintage 2015, ABV 14%. — 10 hours ago
This Brunello is medium dark red in color. The nose shows cherry and cassis aromas, draped in anise, cedar, vanilla and a layer of smoke. The palate is fruity and carries a good acidity and tannic structure. A spicy streak cuts through with an herbal character. The finish is long and brings the savory aspect back for a reminder. — 20 days ago
