Bright red. Sweet spice, ripe red cherry, licorice and flowers on the nose and in the mouth. Smooth and bright, and though not exactly the last word in concentration or complexity, this is downright irresistible in its juicy, fruity appeal. Podere Brizio recently changed ownership and now belongs to Dievole, the Chianti Classico producer (Podere Brizio’s previous owner, Roberto Bellini, is the man who sold the Chiesa di Santa Restituta estate to Gaja, who renamed it Pieve di Santa Restituta).

Полный ягодный аромат с дубом, выпечкой и дегтем. Вкус интенсивный, плотные танины, потенциал. 16.5/20 (91/100)

A nose of eucalyptus and earth, cherries and dark fruit on the palate with slight hints of pencil lead. Medium body and smooth tannin.

Deep garnet color. Tasting deep cherry and raspberry with a hint of tobacco, tar and baking spices. I love Italian wines from this region. Go Bills!

What a wonderfull effort! Still very fruitdriven followed by a strong tannic base. Good acidity. This one is built for the long run...
