Needed a ton of time to open up. Once it did it was pretty good, that being said, I preferred other #Brunello to this one.

proper decant, 1 h +, came together nicely. Rich, elegant nose, driven by cherries and some black currant...blah blah blah

Sour cherry, leather, spice, tea-like tannins and amaro. Still a baby.

Needs to breath for a bit to leverage all flavors to full extent. Cherry and black berries, by no means juicy though. Strong acidity and full body. Elegant and full at once.

In the UC with Greg who opened this beauty. Started out tight and almost a sour dark cherry nose. Then the next hour or two it blew up and became a delicious example of why I should source more Italian wine. Dark fruits and flowers on the nose. 2001 vintage.

Opened up beautifully after decanting. Tasty redfuit, spice.
