Tasty. Not super complex, but nice with a great finish. Great deal at applejacks in denver for $36 a bottle which is crazy cheap for a 10 yr old brunello.

Quite tannic, undertone of bitter orange peel - quite fantastic.

Probably one of the best Italian reds I've had in long time.. Very complex and layered. Taste cherry and plum with the perfect bite of acid and tannin
