Not the best brunello I've had but a nice cherry nose with a bit of heat. Some spices too. A bit of a feral thing too. Not much happening to be fair. The palate is yummy : strong acid backbone, straight tannins that turn a bit astringent in the end. Some bright fruit all along and a nice touch on the tongue. The finish is fruity and as mentioned a bit astringent. Some nice, noble bitterness too. I like it.

Blackberry, blueberry a touch of vanilla and somewhat of a heat on the nose that goes away after a while. The palate is quite balanced : long acid back bone, not so big tannins but quite vibrant, different fruits layers : strawberry first then other red berries on the finish. The vanilla touch is still there all along the acid backbone. The finish is very long and lingers quite a while. Interesting wine

Tastes of earth, leather, tabac, dark fruit and slight green pepper undertone. Needed to breathe 10-15 min before enjoying fullest flavors.

A little bit on the sour side for me.
