Intense plum, fig, tar, massive tannins subdued with time in decanter. Lovely example

Serious structure. Savory with a sour cherry core. Showy but not necessarily my style of Brunello. It will make a lot of people very happy though. #brunellodimontalcino #sangiovese #italy

Great wine. Needs more time in the bottle... Full bodied, lond end in mouth and strong presence of berries and coffee! Smooth and rich. Delicious but I recommend earlier vintages (i.e. Max 2008)
