Wow black fruit tight and big. Wild bright cherries nice acidity and mouthfeel. Rolling gripping tannins. Can benefit from a few more years in the bottle.

This one is a bit more generous with fruit and shows a slightly broader mid palate than the more northern cru. Still very nervy and tight with screeching acidity. Love the intensity, but wouldn’t dare open this for another 5 years.

A stellar bottle of Sangiovese. Elegant, with a dry finish

Classic profile of sour cherry and violet and a touch of spice.

Beautiful Brunello. All the classic notes. A little more fruit forward than our favourite Ugolforte but excellent structure and refined palate. Not much can compare with any Brunello at its finest!

JL Brunello tasting 11/9/17. Ruby color and aromatic nose of darker berries and fruits and palate acidic and lively and long finish. Sandy soil and some French oak. $85.

Liked this least of the three special crus from Val Di Suga. Potentially much better with age.
