Amazing brunello...love this producer...dried red fruit/black fruits, savory, leather and cigar box. Came out of the gate with some VA and barnyard funk which made it fun as the structural elements all there..it blew away in time but overall just perfect. Paired with grandmas pizza!

Intense wine with ash, dark fruits and dry finish. Needs serious decant or cellar time.

Transparent ruby with brick red hue. Nose has a bouquet of flowers and red fruit with pasture earth and tobacco spice. Palate is fresh and balanced with good structure and integrated tannins. Finish is long and dry.

Massive, a little underwhelmed by being overwhelmed.

This 2006 still needed decanting to open up. The tannins are silky and the fruit jumps out on the palate. It brought back memories of how the best wines of Saint-Emilion present themselves in tannic structure and darkness of in color. But 100% Sangiovese on the nose. Old world at it's finest.

Drinking worlds better than the last 2006. Tobacco, cured meat and wild strawberry. An excellent BDM.
