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

Bright red. Very perfumed floral nose of red berries & minty herbs. High but harmonious acidity lifts & extends the strawberry, orange peel & 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 & 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 & 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.
