Classic BdM. Medium/full, dark cherry, earthy, dusty tannin. Well balanced throughout. Nice compliment to an excellent filet and seafood pasta.

Still a good amount if life ahead. Showing all of the tertiary notes of mushroom and soy, while still maintaining bright sour cherry and bramble notes. Worked well with chicken Parm and roasted brassicas!

Dark purple and shows it on the palate with integrated tannins, sour cherry, sweet tobacco box, cedar, and a hint of blackberries. Aroma is sweet but edgy, incorporating some graphite and toast. Lovely pairing with ribeye and an excellent value.

Lots of life ahead. Let her breathe. Big fruit, oak, acid, and tannin.

From 375 ml format.
The nose is more delicate based on what I'm used to. Red fruits, with maybe red licorice. The palette is powerful and tight, as the tannins are underripe. Love the acid structure, complimented with raspberries and capsicum. Lovely long finish, but this needs another five years to show its true colors. Having said that, this will be excellent in time.

Impressive. Taut, but well balanced. This glides across the palette - loving it. This is not a one night stand. Serious brunello drinkers take one step forward!
