"This is fruit-forward with lots of depth and intensity. Cherry and berry character is profuse. Full and velvety. Flavorful finish. Fantastic. Better in 2019."

Product Description:

This is an EXTREMELY small production Brunello that is made of some pretty incredible fruit. These vineyards were once contracted to the famous house of Biodi Santi to be used in their Riserva bottling.

2012 was a very good year for Brunello di Montalcino, and they are really starting to come around. With 8 years of age on them, the fruit has really settled in and the classic notes of Leather, coffee and tobacco start coming though. There are just over 300 cases of this wine made in total. This is the kind of Brunello you can drink now, or hold. It is completely up to you!

"Bound by a philosophy that is respectful of the land, Azienda Agricola Casa Raia adheres strictly to the principles of organic production."-- Winery
