Magical clearance and transparency,,this promising effort is light on its feet yet intense and impressively long. Bursting with lovely floral red berries, it's framed by sweet and caressing tannins. A new benchmark for the region.

Violet, cloves and all l manner of dark cherry - dried, fresh, even liqueur. Undertone of earthiness that has almost completely mellowed yet present. Elegant, powerful, serene.

Nice drinking Brunello that had an elegant feel with lots of bright cherry, berry, spice, leather, tobacco & floral notes.

Heady. Dark. Elegantly crystalline ruby red. Dark cherry, rosemary, touch of spice, lastly faint caramel warmth. Thankful for this wine, sincerely.

As someone who tries to not by green bananas it's a bit hard to evaluate but I think this is already great and will only get better. Impressive!

Dense, brooding, slightly dull today. Preferred their normale brunello from a few weeks ago at the Bascule-Chicago tasting.

Strong manure in bouquet. Flavor very spicey, earthy manure lost in spice and bittertannins. I know this wine is highly rated (understatement) but not my favorite.
