So many Brunello normales have failed me >10 years but this was singing, smooth and ever so slightly dry, sour cherry and sandalwood. Superb.

Tobacco. Leather.

Perfectly aged. Couldn’t imagine this cellaring any longer. Any additional time would just mellow this out too much.

Smoke. Chocolate.

Well balanced.

Subtle dark fruit.

Wicked Brunello.

Young and powerful fruit. Fresh blasts of cherry. Good acidity. Still very vital

Garnet red. Red berries and some floral notes. Some earthy and dirt/dust notes too. Moderate tannins (7/10) with moderate plus acidity. Great texture and medium bodied. Dried cherries, savory notes and herbs on the palate. Super long finish, dry and some metallic notes in the finish. Drink till 2022.

Delicate Sangiovese. Some red fruit but loads of tar and leather.Amazing with pork ragu and polenta after five hours of decanting. Tasty but not complex. Has time but isn’t getting better.
