Medium Ruby with fragrant berry fruit, spice and floral notes. On the palate red berry flavors, spice, pepper, tangy mineral feel. Fine but grippy tannins, medium+ savory finish ending with a mushroom and mineral character. Nice!

Vivid medium-dark red. Hints at black and red fruits on the delicate, refined nose, complicated by nuances of violet and flint. Then smooth and suave in the mouth, with outstanding breadth to the blueberry, sour red cherry, potpourri and floral flavors. Penetrating minerality contributes to the lasting impression of precision and verve. The noble, mouth-coating tannins provide backbone and noteworthy aging potential to this extremely elegant, pure, dense wine. One of the top eight or so Brunellos of the 2013 vintage. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2018)

Still a baby but boy is this going places. Earthy and structured with aroma of berries and braised meat. Look forward to revisiting in a few years.

Full-bodied with lush tannins and layers of complexity. Plum, cherry, and cinnamon dominate along with graphite, tobacco, leather, menthol, and mineral in the long finish.
