Red and black roses shine across a black cherry lake with a cinnamon-cedar island over which hovers a basil and raspberry mist. Medium mouthfeel, shimmering with tart cherry, frozen dark chocolate, cracked coffee bean, cherry dust, dried bing cherry and rose petal with ash, red tea, dried cranberries and the absolute scintilla of micro-tar. Intense interplay, but as delicate as Pinot in its complex minutiae. #brunellodimontalcino #brunello #italianwines #montalcino #Renieri #redwine #sangiovese #zeus — 2 years ago
Spectacular Brunello with a nod to a Burgundian touch and influence with a transparent feel and fruit purity. Not a trace of oak on the palate. Refined and silky tannin, ample acids, a long, fruit filled finish that has the Sangiovese from Brunello feel in the aroma and palate.

Generous, intense, brooding, sexy wine from accomplished winemaker #SebastianNasello of #PodereLeRipi. Due to #sommlife, I've had approximately 60 #sangiovese based wines in 48 hours. This one takes the cake. Or, the steak, as it were. #bonsai is from a #montalcino vineyard with 63,000+ vines/ha, forcing hydrostatic stress & rapid root development. 600 bottles produced. Almost all, sadly, consumed greedily upon release (guilty as charged). I'd love to see where this goes... — 3 years ago
