Dry with strong tannins; tart cherries, red currants, bramble, mineral, funk; subtle oak, spice, and vanilla on the nose; opens up over time

Lovely. Dried flowers and fruits, silky tannins, and perfect acidity.

This wine is aging really well. Chocolate and dark red fruits with some animal features on the nose. On the palate, tannins are smoothing out, ripe plums and berries. Classing up spaghetti and meatballs!

Gets better as I drink it. Dark around the edges, I was worried that decanting would over oxidize it. But it did get better. Still testing. Very smooth for 2 years in oak.

Good wine. A touch on the acidic side- pretty drinkable. $45

Nicely balanced Brunello. How did dinner at an Italian restaurant. Very light bodied as usual. "There is a hole in my glass" said Liz

Very good red. Could have had another bottle as this was easily finished over dinner.
