Great Sangiovese character - cured meat

Lovely Brunello, especially for Burgundy lovers. This violet-laced, ripe cherry, and sandalwood Brunello will leave you wanting more. With a 1 hour decant, it's ready to go for those who are fine with the high tannins and acidity. Certainly, it can handle 10+ years of cellaring, but it's hard to resist now. Wow.

Beautiful clear bricking vermillion with clear edges. Dusty leather, fruit compote, old dried citrus nose with a slight touch of heat. Gorgeous acidity, medium tannin, rich layers of fresh and candy cherry, plum, mulberry. Buy 2 if you can and drink one now and the other in 10 years.

Hints of cigar smoke fade after a nice cherry start. Absolutely delicious. Watching the Martian...again.
