Dark ruby in color with a wide brick rim. Beautiful nose of sweet plums, cooked blueberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, leather, spices, smoke, tobacco leaf, graphite, vinaigrette, herbs, beef jerky and peppercorn. Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs. Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, smoke, peppermint, light coffee, light vegetables, cinnamon, vinaigrette and black pepper. Long finish with round, fine tannins and tangy raspberries. This is a great Brunello. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing great complexity and a great mouthfeel with a very spicy mid palate. I really loved the nose on this Brunello, I kept smelling on it for a long time. Needed an hour to open up, and was better every 20 minutes after that. After 3 hours, huge tannins come in with dark coffee and bitter notes. This 12 year old big boy has at least 5 years in it, and this is a great vintage too. I paired it with Italian antipasto. 15% alcohol by volume. 93 points. $45.

Cellared since release. Tannins are still pretty massive. Emphasis on dark sour cherries with some cocoa, baking spices at this stage. Needs time, still.

Extremely typical Brunello nose. Red cherries, hint of tomato.

Nice nose, a bit sweet. On the palate, still tannic, mild prune flavors and seems to be heading over the hill. Not that impressive. I will drink these up in the next year or two. After that?

We had this on 10/22-23/17. We decanted for over four hours. The fine tannins softened over the latter hours. Sweet cherry, leather and cigar box. Smooth finish to this medium bodied and well balanced wine.

Dark brown with notable bricking on the edge. Leather and liquorice aromatics. Strawberry all over the place. Very good length.
