Lovely incense/black cherry nose with plenty of umami action. In the mouth this is pretty compact and un compelling but with promise. Strike a pose (hold)

Vibrant dark cherry with some hints of fresh plum. Such well integrated, rounded tannins that made it an extreme balanced wine with a great finish.

From a friend's cellar. They decanted about 2 hrs before we drank it. Lovely drink-now brunello: tar and soft rose with soft charcoal on the nose. On the palate: fantastic acidity, blackberry, soft charcoal, a hint of cola, soft tomato, and a very softly tannic finish. Very good.

Decent value bottle picked up at Costco. Not young tasting; seems like it is close to peak and won’t age as well as I’d hope.
