Cherry cordial, candied citrus, mulling spices. Balanced. For a normale Brunello this has a good number of years in front of it.

Concentration and power developed into into huge aromatics and balance with a standard decanting.

I didn't think this was ready to drink, but had try it on for size... This will benefit from cellaring, but is incredibly open with a little air!

Violets, tart cherries and slightly earthy aromas. Drinking remarkably well for such a young Brunello. Tannins mellowed with extensive decanting. Looking forward to tasting this again after some aging.

Excited to try this bought on pre-sale. Lots of hype on the 2010 vintage. It's delicious great ripeness and power, tannins are surprisingly soft, but acidity is taught and it will go some distance. Glad we got some..

Amazing Brunello! Nice orange colour, notes of coffee, leather, and olive. Highly recommended, will cellar well for 25-35 years

This is a classic Brunello light with soft tannins very well integrated with fruit and berry and a long finish. It's a little hot with 14.5% alcohol. Excellent with pasta, beef, veal on a winter day.

Dry, rustic, perhaps a bit of tobacco. Perfect with olives, cheese...great counterbalance.
