Starting to oxidize. Ripe fruit. Strawberry jam, cornmeal and dried flowers. Dry in general with pronounced tannins. Not a huge fan. #brunellodimontalcino #tuscanwine #italianwines #overpriced

Half-bottle so I said, why not. Pound for pound my favorite Montalcino producer. Intense color and intense focus. Frankly way too young but will be glorious and this is one for the long, long haul. Dried fruits of dark cherry and plum, savory herbs, roast espresso, licorice and lavender all wrapped in serious balance. Incredible elegance will develop in time.

Tremendous intensity of ripe cherry, with amaro-like herbal complexity and well-integrated wood. Reasonably fresh and lively despite its serious weight and structure. Drink now, or give it a decade or two

Smelling this wine is like walking into a candy store, complemented with red fruits. Very full taste with quite some tannins, high acidity and the taste of warm, jammy fruit.
