Intense plum, fig, tar, massive tannins subdued with time in decanter. Lovely example

Serious structure. Savory with a sour cherry core. Showy but not necessarily my style of Brunello. It will make a lot of people very happy though. #brunellodimontalcino #sangiovese #italy

Had this last weekend and after about an hour or air it was fully enjoyable Brunello. Gaja Brunellos signature is clear and wine is terrific example you do not need the high end ones to have 1st class wine. Highly recommended for those who like the bit deeper toned Brunello

Great wine. Needs more time in the bottle... Full bodied, lond end in mouth and strong presence of berries and coffee! Smooth and rich. Delicious but I recommend earlier vintages (i.e. Max 2008)
