Past its peak but still interesting. Tannins are soft, balsamic, dried herbs, plum, earth

Very fruity, jammy almost and higher alcohol. Missed the earth.

Big, fruit-forward and powerful. A bold wine with excellent tannins and nice acidity...it’s drinking well now but definitely had many, many years ahead of it.

Surprising elegance on the palate for being as saturated and alcoholic as it is. Classic dark cherry, leather, cigar box, licorice, balsamic herb notes, dry and dusty tannin. Great fruit purity and spice character. Big, powerful wine with a sensitive side.

A perfect reminder that the point of wine is to bring us together. Thank you to the ever gracious @Leslie Hartley-Sbrocco for hosting, and Riccardo Illy for providing the delicious reason to do so.

Elegant wine. Wild strawberry and dried dark cherry and cassis. Earthiness and tobacco give this wine the depth one would expect. Open 60-90 minutes before service.

Fruitier than most Brunellos, strawberry jam, toasted vanilla, fun balance

All 5 bottles loaded with VA. Hides the fruit. Takes hours to open, but has promise once it does. New school style.
