This red cuts a broad swath with cherry, strawberry, iron and savory herb flavors. Dense yet lively and harmonious, with a long, mineral- and spice-infused aftertaste. Best from 2025 through 2042. 850 cases made, 100 cases imported.

The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino Vallocchio shows a robust fruit profile and powerful 15% alcohol. The wine reflects the warmth and heat of the vintage, but a deft hand in the cellar assures balance and elegance in winemaking. The bouquet reveals dark cherry, rum cake, balsam herb and tarry smoke. There's no mistaking that hot-vintage signature and the more exuberant and boisterous personality displayed here. The cellar folks should be proud of their efforts in this 5,000-bottle release.
