Deep red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of red and black cherry, cinnamon, mocha, ginger and blood orange. Smooth and multifaceted, with strong licorice notes emerging on the long suave close. (Ian D'Agata, Vinous, April 2020)

Dark tawny. Almost opaque. Bright fruit forward nose. Notes of ripe black cherries, flowers, some wood and a little cough syrup. Silky and smooth in the mouth. Lasting finish. Good stuff

Dark tawny with reddish rims. Almost opaque. Nice nose. Notes of black cherries, some black licorice, blueberries pepper, and some dark dry earth. Has a heavy presence in the mouth with structure dominating the modest sweet fruit in the background. I would say drink these up as the fruit is dry and fading, leaving a dry and wispy finish.

Dark fruit. Slightly stinky with notes of tobacco, sour cherry and dark wood. Quite austere but great balance and purity.

A lovely clear garnet color in the center and light brown rim. Fresh rolled cigar aroma right off the bat with a nice black cherry and plum fruit quality. The minerality comes through for me as wet leaves and dirt. Savory like sautéed mushrooms on the palette, with a good bite to the tannins, acid, and alcohol, (at a whopping 15%!) which needs time. The fruit develops nicely in it’s quite decent length. I suspect this will get better and better in a few more year’s time.

This is go to Brunello and first wine in almost two weeks - been a crazy two weeks and glad it is behind me / also recuperating from my first round of golf in a long time

So just closed my eyes sort of to pick tonight and this baby is helping me with my back pain and get me ready for tomorrow’s golf

This is not as good as I remember but still delicious

Dried plum, caramel, brown sugar. Rich and a little tight, needs to be decanted to open properly. Tannins are lush and smooth. Paired with duck breast, not disappointed!
