This wine sings. Heavy notes of peach, candied but not sweet. This has a lingering finish that is sophisticated and deep and it is going to continue to age into a wise old gentleman and woo the young ladies. So smooth with all the right moves.

Good full pale ruby-red. Knockout aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and minerals, complicated by hints of iris and violet. Extremely suave and polished on the extremely long, pure, mineral finish. Deeper, richer, more tannic and longer than the lovely 2013 Brunello Classico from Altesino, this is an absolutely beautiful Brunello. I especially like that the pristine, refined aromas and flavors of the famed Montosoli site are showcased to maximum effect here. One of the best Brunellos of the vintage.

Great structure here. Severe tannins encapsulate bright but ripe cherries and minerality. Youthful finish. Will age well. Best from 2020.

Notes of Black cherry, horse saddle and herbs. I'm really enjoying my virtual trip to Italy's most iconic wine region.
