TASTING NOTES

This wine opens to a thin and streamlined appearance. Mirrors the main characteristics of the vintage with a clean mouthfeel and bright berry aromas. Achieves more fruit ripeness in 2014 with aromas of plum, dark cherry and dried cassis. 

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate.

Very perfumed aromas of dark berries and hints of dried violets and orange peel. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a linear and fine finish. Fresh and lively. Drink now.

James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Mature mid ruby with bricky rim. Balsamic nose that is slow to open up on the fruit. Complex palate of earthy, sour-cherry fruit with bags of coating tannins. Very long and impressive. 

Walter Speller, jancisrobinson.com

Bright red. Flinty, musky aromas and flavors of red cherry, herbs and violet. Juicy and fresh, with berry flavors that linger nicely on the clean fresh finish of outstanding length. Not the most complex Brunello you’ll ever taste but a very good result for the year.

Ian D'Agata, Vinous.
