Delivering classically earthy aromas alongside fresh fruit and spice, this organically farmed Brunello strikes a perfect balance of old and new. Soft tannins and dark berry notes suggest the ripeness of the vintage, which we've been extolling the virtues of since we first started tasting the outstanding resultant wine. 2010 has truly produced some of the finest Brunello that we've tasted, and we expect it to excite for years.

Made with organically farmed grapes, this opens with pretty aromas of crushed rose, violet, perfumed berry, leather, truffle and a balsamic note. The warm palate doles out fleshy wild cherry, stewed plum, cake spice, anisette and savory herb alongside velvety tannins. It closes on a licorice note and the heat of evident alcohol. Drink 2018–2025. (5/1/2015) -91

Cherry and raspberry flavors highlight this juicy, forthcoming red. The structure is forgiving, with gum-coating tannins matched by ripe fruit. Best from 2018 through 2030. -BS

Unusually dark, youthful ruby. There is a little of that fruit cake and baking spice on the nose indicating very ripe fruit, while the palate is youthful, vibrant and concentrated and with a hint of vanilla. Bold, modern style with plenty of ripe tannins. (WS)

Tasting Notes
Dark purple red with garnet red hue. Complex and intensive nose with cent of rule red fruit and aromas of underbrush. On the palate full bodied, acidity, tannin and structure in full harmony. It is distinguished by its elegance, finesse and his great personality. Convincing length. Ideal to wild meats dishes, like “Bistecca alla Fiorentina”; excellent also with matured cheese and prosciutto.
