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!

Deep ruby color. Notes of sour cherries, raisins, cocoa, forest floor and baking spices. Medium acid and body. Medium tannins and finish.

Concentrated and dense. Thicker in texture and with more oak presence than the white label.

Took a good 2.5 hour decant to start to open up. This is going to warrant a higher rating in a few years. Enjoyable now, but I would wait a while before opening another.

Awesome Brunello. A little on the lighter side but very complex and super smooth. Price point was high but this one is a definite would have again.
