Classic styled Brunello. Tart dried cherry, with leather and licorice. Pale translucent red with massive tannin and acidity. Thought it was Barolo. 🤷‍♂️ #blindtasting #brunello #Barbi

Popped and poured; consumed over the course of a couple of hours. Lean and mean. This was high toned red fruits, gravel, black tea and underbrush on the nose. Tart red berries on the palate. Thanks for sharing Tom!

Earthy nose, silky on the palate, cigarette ash into firm balanced tannins on the finish. Drinks like it had many years of age-ability

Victim of poor storage conditions. Drinkable but not what Brunello should be.

Well balanced with red fruit and a hint of oak.

Nice example. Big acid and tons of red plum fruit. Elegant and nice. Drank too early!
