"An opulent red with dried-plum and coffee character in addition to lots of cherry and spice character. Full body, medium-chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold."

91+ Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Good full red. Fresh red berries and minerals on the nose. Rich but juicy, offering noteworthy generosity in the mid-palate with intense flavors of red fruits, crushed rocks and spices. The youthfully chewy tannins have plenty of support, but hold on to this until 2022. Finishes long and downright stony, with impeccable balance and sneaky concentration. Very good showing."

Product Description:

"Brunello is Montalcino’s signature wine, made entirely from Sangiovese grapes (Brunello is the local, but unofficial, name for Sangiovese).

Palazzo is a traditionally-made Brunello (large oak only) from the South-Eastern part of the production area. It has an intense ruby red color, which tends towards garnet with age. Scented, high-toned aromas of red berries, sweet spices and flowers, with a note of candied red cherry emerging with air. Fine-grained and floral, offering excellent energy and lift in the mouth, and attractive inner-mouth perfume to its red berry flavors. Finishes clean and persistent, with smooth tannins." - Importer
