Dark cherry, tobacco, some leather and a hint of violets and lavender on the nose. Good balance on the palate with nice dark fruit and a full palate with a slightly soured finish. This has some time ahead but is fun now. Great with stuffed peppers.

Beginning to show a brick edge. Great aromas of cherry, herbs (sage and lavender) leather and plum. Good length, softening tannins and we'll balanced

@Jorge Carabelli 's favorite brunello and I see why. Love this vintage in particular and have enjoyed having it over the past couple of years to see how it has evolved. Getting even nicer if that was at all possible.

Either the vintage is turning or this bottle was poorly stored. The ox was too much

Elegant and fresh with ripe red berries, Tuscan herbs, spicy unreality and a lengthy finish.
