This wine sings. Heavy notes of peach, candied but not sweet. This has a lingering finish that is sophisticated and deep and it is going to continue to age into a wise old gentleman and woo the young ladies. So smooth with all the right moves.

Good full pale ruby-red. Knockout aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry, licorice and minerals, complicated by hints of iris and violet. Extremely suave and polished on the extremely long, pure, mineral finish. Deeper, richer, more tannic and longer than the lovely 2013 Brunello Classico from Altesino, this is an absolutely beautiful Brunello. I especially like that the pristine, refined aromas and flavors of the famed Montosoli site are showcased to maximum effect here. One of the best Brunellos of the vintage.

From PnP at cellar temp. Light garnet color. Intense aromas of tart red cherries, wet stones, licorice. Palette is dull at first. 15m in the decanter brought out earthy funk and oxidative, sherry-like notes. Lush mouthfeel, medium acid and medium- tannin. Seems well drinking at this stage with room for development. Pairing to homemade lasagna.

I’m crushing. Hard. Let’s go steady. I’ll give you my letterman jacket. Sure our breakup will be the scandal of the school and you’ll burn the jacket, but by the time grad comes along we’ll be friends and better for the experience. In my 40s, on dark and cold nights, I’ll still think of you. The memories will never die of those magnificent 6 weeks together.

Loved this one. Silky smoothe palette with cherry & raspberry notes. Chewy tannins and a great long finish.
