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.

Birthday wine tasting-not a bad bottle in the bunch! This was in mag format and decanted for 2 over two hours and was still a brute but fantastic

Young and sappy. Dry intense and dense. Classic brunello fruit with a whiff of tobacco. Quite closed but lovely balance. Good stuff but probably give it a few years

Dry but delicious. And sweet once you have the right food pairings. Decanted for 6 hours. Not enough. If I do it for 12+hrs it could be even better. You can tell this is a powerful wine and can hold on to that finesse taste even after being opened for hours. Addendum- I decanted two more bottles. One for 8 hrs one for 18 hrs. 18 is way too long, the wine lost a lot of its magic. The sweet spot might be 6-8hrs.

This is a big wine with a major manure factor on the nose! Palate is very old world and vegetal with herbs and wood shavings... still with bold tannins.. good legs. Classic, pure interpretation of Brunello!
