Plenty of balsamic aromas preview this red, settling into a core of macerated cherry and plum fruit, framed by juniper, thyme, Scotch broom, tar and iodine. Racy and harmonious, with a solid layer of tannins underneath. Best from 2024 through 2047. 1,300 cases made, 700 cases imported.

A serene and intensely structured Brunello with cherry, cedar, walnut and dry-earth aromas with some burnt-lemon undertones. Full-bodied, yet with very fine tannins that are extremely polished and beautiful. Goes on for minutes. A gorgeous young wine. Try after 2023.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino has aromatics of dried cherry, licorice, and menthol and cedar. The palate is upfront with firmly structured tannins, crunchy red plum, tomato leaf, incense, and orange zest. It was aged for two years in a combination of barriques and large barrel. Allow 3-5 years in cellar to harmonize and drink 2024-2040.
"The colour is ruby red with a slight tendency to garnet. The perfume is intense and complex, spicy, with dominant notes of Amarena cherry. The olfactory phase continues on the palate. The flavour is full, harmonious and persistent, with dense and silky tannins." -Winery
