WHN virtual tasting. 07’ Valdicava, Brunello Montalcino. Medium garnet in color. Pull the cork three hours ahead of time. Decanted it for one hour. The nose is simply out of this world! Black licorice & dark berry aromas, with baked chocolate. On the palate, it is velvety, rich in blackberry, black cherry. You get tons of leather/tobacco running to the back of the palate. Juicy tannins, with a long finish. Drinking now. Cheers

A gift from Vincenzo & Sofia Abbruzzese from our reunion from Sofia's summer 2016 with us. Enjoying tonight and send the perfect moment for aromatics. Perfect Queen Anne cherries, sage, basil and iron. Love so much.

This is the sleeper of the night. Opened it to say hello but I'd definitely said goodbye to us and shut the door in our face. We revisited 3 hours later and there was a welcome Mat on the front Palate which stated "Welcome!". Absolutely insane. Its transformation was insane. Beautifully integrated. The nose of the Night was a toss up between this and another. Incredibly earthy, leather, dark fruit & what a finish it was. Lance Armstrong didn't have this much stamina. Front, Mid & Back Palate . This is firing on all cylinders & we continuously revisited this one through the entire night. Incredible, simply incredible. Thank you for sharing such a great bottle with us. IOU one!

Everything I want a Brunello to be and more! Savory, acidic, the tannins have mellowed some but this will age for many more years to come.

Really excellent. I was afraid it would be too young but this bottle is extraordinary. Meaty, leathery, dusty and just enough black cherry fruit to make it delicious

Hint of #brett on the nose, moderately astringent, all-in-all not bad, but certainly not worth the sky high price tag.
