96

A Brunello of great personality, where the nose plays on the tones of small red fruits of undergrowth, with floral touches of carnation and officinal hints of thyme. Closing on dried spices, cinnamon above all. Salty mouth, iodized tannins. On the finish, scents of undergrowth are returning

92 Wine Spectator

Black currant, raspberry and boysenberry flavors are shaded by woodsy, wild herb, menthol and graphite notes in this distinctive red. Expressive, if not the harmony of its peers, shows some fierce tannins flexing their muscles on the chewy, astringent finish. — Bruce Sanderson

91 Wine Enthusiast

Licorice, eucalyptus, moist underbrush and crushed mint aromas take center stage along with whiffs of toasted walnut. The licorice note follows through to the solid palate along with dried cherry, roasted mushroom and coffee bean before finishing on a saline note.

Product Description:
