Lighter-styled Brunello offering a red cherry mint, smoky soft plum and bruised rose petal; lightest pepper, poppyseed.
Vague notes of banana and spun sugar. Tart cherry, raspberry and oregano on the palate, cedar-cigar, grainy tannins and roobios. Good Brunello for the money!

High QPR #sangiovese - dark cherry, forest floor and leather aromas - pretty rich and plummy on the palate but still plenty of varietal acidity. ~$10 at Total Wine. — a year ago
True to form. Pure #brunello #brunellodimontalcino #sangiovese from inner #tuscany medium Garnet color medium(+) intensity aromas of red fruits, red cherries, pomegranate, raspberry and dried red plums. Hints of herbal aromas (oregano, thyme and sage) with secondary aromas of oak (vainilla, cedar and toast) and tertiary aromas and flavors of dried red fruits. On the palate the wine is dry with medium(+) acidity, firm ripe medium(#) tannins and high alcohol and a medium(+) body. The finish is medium(+). This is a 2015 and it can still develop favorably in the bottle. It has a balance of ripe red fruits, juicy medium(+) acidity and the maturation in oak gives it the elegance and the depth to continue to develop over time. It’s aromas and flavors are still full of juicy rich concentrated red fruits and the tertiary aromas and flavors so typical of Brunello make this wine a fine example. — 2 years ago
Black and red cherry fruit aromas, dried cran and raisin, display a light tangerine, sage, aloe and pepper dust. Sweet tobacco, and spot on measures of cedar and smoke. Dried cherry, pointedly tart raspberry, black cherry, cocoa, coffee, and tarragon round out the palate. Juicy in places; lean on the pyrotechnics. Balanced in a word.

Unfussy, varietally typical #toscana #sangiovese. Needed a few minutes to open up but classic varietal woodsy slightly spicy red fruit; nicely balanced and paired well with marinara sauce pasta at a charming Italian Trattoria in SoHo NYC. Bottle was priced very accessibly. — a year ago
#umbria IGP blend of 34% #merlot, 33% #cabernetsauvignon and 33% #sangiovese - nicely concentrated prominent bramble fruit + earthy spice on the nose, well-balanced acidity, dark fruit and soft tannins on the palate. After a day in the wine fridge some prune notes suggest it’s fading after 5 years but helluva buy at Costco for ~$8. — 2 years ago
