Aromas of sunbaked soil, leather, exotic spice, violet and menthol come together on this. The taut elegant palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, orange zest, chopped mint and star anise while fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide balance. Drink 2021–2028.

Bright red. Very perfumed floral nose of red berries and minty herbs. High but harmonious acidity lifts and extends the strawberry, orange peel and mineral flavors on the long, vibrant back end. The wine ages roughly 24 months in 33-hL Slavonian oak casks. Scopetone’s Brunellos are always some of the shrillest, most taut and pristine wines made in all of Montalcino, though at times they could use just a touch more flesh. That recognized, I love the floral perfume, very juicy strawberry flavors and mineral edge that give this wine a unique personality among Montalcino’s greats.
The maceration with the skins and the alcoholic fermentation (25 days) is carried out in a traditional way in stainless steel vats, with daily punching down of the cap. The wine then matures for 24 months in Slavonian oak casks of a capacity of 33 hectolitres. Finishing in the bottle for 7-8 months.
