Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim. A Very pretty color.

Strong nose of blueberries, black cherries, wood, light vanilla, licorice, light alcohol, wet leaves, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, dark coffee, light pencil lead and river rocks.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs. Soft and elegant.

Dry on the palate with black cherries, sweet strawberries, cooked blueberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, vegetables, green herbs, tobacco leaf, earth and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Brunello. Well balanced and delicious by itself or with food. Showing a tangy and spicy finish, which I loved.

This 9 year old from the great 2010 vintage, is showing a great mouthfeel with great complexity. Peaking now.

Wine Enthusiasts 96 points.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly and show some tannins and complexity, so please be patient.

A good sipping wine. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$85.

Holding up really well. Needed some air but opened up after about 30min. Red and dark fruited. Dry, dusty herbs and some truffle...perhaps a touch of some baking spice but only just. A very typical and very well executed BdM.

This one is still a bit wound up. Has some nice rich fruit up front but it's got a lot of structure still. Revisit in a couple years.

Pomegranate and serious forrest floor dominate the nose with a hint of porcini mushrooms. Dark fruit of cassis, pomegranate, and stewed blackberries continue on the palate with some lighter tannins. Drink over the next 3 years.

Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Cherry , Rose water....and I mean that in the silkiest way possible. That said.... there is still a smidge of tannin which takes just a touch away from the full potential. I would say 2025-2029...and it will be liquid gold. Still, lovely at the moment.

Wow, incredible bouquet! Black berries/cherries, licorice, mocha, chocolate, hint of black olive. Long finish, full body, mellow tannins. 2 hour decant. Dad’s 70th.
