Not the best vintage but this baby is ready and drinking beautifully! Love where the 'new' winemaker is going.

Medium bodied with Licorice, leather and tobacco. Perfect tannins and balance. Delicious.

Full bodied and bold. Lots of tannins and acid. Vanilla, earthy, leather, cloves, prune, a little alcohol forward. Gift from Federico.

Beautifully spicy cherry fruit, smooth and silky to a clean, well-balanced acidic finish. On the lighter side of most Brunellos.
