Very savoury aromatics - earthy , mushrooms, wet nappy, leather, plums. The palate is medium bodied finishing with grippy fine powdery tannins - a little astringent. This wine is middle aged and will carry on through to the mid 2020’s. I have had better Brunellos. Will put it down to the vintage where there are differing views. Parker said 2012 was 88/100 and “ready to drink”.

Ruby with berry fruit, fragrant spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of cherry, raspberry and licorice with notes of smoky pepper spice, tangy mineral feel. Fine tannins, medium+ savory finish ending with a vanilla, tobacco, cacao wrapped in an earthy character. Nice!

Reddish tawny and opaque. A food wine kind of nose. Dark fruit, wood and spice. A good wine to go with the Italian fare this evening.

Dark garnet color. Nice nose with notes of black cherry, leather, spices, dark flowers and some soil. Lots of structure and acidity in the mouth. Paired nicely with homemade pasta and sauce.

This still needs a bit of time. Quite tart. Showed a lot of rose petal and tar upfront...maybe even some iron? Very underripe fresh squeezed blackberries and black cherry on the palate, with underbrush and cedar.

Still young but a great and serious bottle of Brunello. Hold for 5 more years .

Not normally the biggest fan of Brunello but this was outstanding. Deep, dark fruits, a hint of leather, and incredibly surprising acidity.

Sadly, slightly corked. Nice wine underneath. Hard to rate under the circumstances.

Just a 👶.
Not my favorite Drew. What did you think of it?
I get a bright amarone type of note on the palate. Unfortunately, I dislike Amarone’s!! I only enjoy raisins on my Raisin Bran in the morning. Lol
