Always a favorite. Mid-full body, round, dry, craving some aged cheese.

Every once in a while, even a blind pig finds an acorn... Or in this case a taste of Casanova. The difference between Brunello and BRUNELLO is intensity and concentration. Drinking both is a study in terroir. The herbaceous liquoriceyness of the region (you like that word?) is amplified in the best producers. Nice!

Sad. Completely oxidized. Whomever owned this before us is a disgrace to wine collectors. I can only imagine they were proud to display this bottle in their fancy 6 bottle crate and barrel wedding gift. Probably sat on top of the refrigerator, too. Schifo

Light purple in the glass. Medium body on the palate. A bit earthy on the tip of the tongue along with some spice. A nice lingering and spicy finish. Detected some cherry on the palate and finish. The last of my case of wine I brought back with me from Tuscany. I'm surprised I held on to this for so long. This wine aged very nicely.

What a beautiful expression of this variety and region. Had barely any bottle bouquet. Would have guessed it to be 5 years younger.

Regal and serious Brunello that demands age.
