Zippy sour cherry, but thin mouthfeel. Not a bad wine. But a poor ambassador for the notion that I should pay 2x the amount for essentially the same wine from Chianti Classico.

Very well balanced and nuanced. Still has a long way to go. Excellent structure.

Nice example of Brunello. Good cherry fruit. Could use some more time.
