Top Notes For
Tom Casagrande

Color is alarmingly advanced. Nose has menthol, dried leaves, cured tobacco, very ripe fruit, and scorched earth note. The alcohol (15%) also is apparent on the nose. On entry, the palate is very ripe and peppery, but dries out pretty quickly as the scorchy notes and dried leaves come on. It’s a little puzzling how this got to be 15% in such a moderate growing season, but it seems to me this would have benefited from earlier picking.

This wine was excellent. The nose was the beginning of a pleasurable moment leading into earthy flavor tones, and mild spice. There are enough tannins to sustain this wine a lot longer in the shelf. The finish wasn’t completely smooth but flavors lingered after the finish. Excellent with a red tomato and red meat meal.

16/20 (88/100) Аромат кислых красных ягод (вишня, брусника, кизил) и морёной древесины. Относительно легкое тело для брунелло, высокая кислотность, замшевые по текстуре танины. Алкоголь неприятно выпирает во вкусе. Так себе брунелло.
