2012. Well balanced, peppery. Needs a half hour to open up its fullness.

Another outstanding wine from the excellent 2012 vintage. Although slightly fresher than the warmer 2011 vintage, this wine offers also a lush Brunello style. Loads if fruit and spice, and a finish that goes on and on. Truly delicious now, will be even better in the coming years.

Mid-ranged, classic Brunello picked up at Costco for $28.99. Floral with high-pitched dark cherries and red plum, charred herbs, forest floor and dried tobacco leaves. Structurally, this wine had moderate plus acidity, moderate tannins and moderate length of finish. Great QPR on this wine and it paired well with a pan seared New York Strip with garlic, rosemary and thyme.

Dark cherry and earthy notes on the nose. Same on the tongue but with tannins in the driver's seat! Loved it for the price!

Not for me. Although, I should admit that Sangiovese is not my favorite grape. This wine is an accurate depiction of what I don’t care for in Sangiovese.

Cherry with some herbaceous notes. Smooth and elegant. Could be sipped without food but food makes this wine a knockout.
