Medium to full bodied. Brandied black cherry, black truffle, faint of raspberry, rosemary, mint and pipe tobacco. Although I have a lot of descriptors here, the wine lacks finesse and integration of fruit and tannin, resulting in an awkwardness and in any quite as balanced as you would assume. Tannins are still abrasive and may need a few years to soften & integrate. A very dry food wine that needs food with salt and fat to counteract the tannin. Heavy roasts and red meat work well.

Solid wine but not really memorable. Can taste the currant and plum undertones

Great stuff. Maybe needs one or two more years - tannins a bit sharp. Still very drinkable though. Great fruit

Best bang for the buck you’ll find for a Brunello di Montalcino. Balanced fruit and acid. Soft tannins Great now
