Expert Reviews
  • International Wine Cellar
    Very dark garnet with blackish hues. Wonderfully sweet aromas of very ripe dark fruits mingling with sandalwood and cedar. Tobacco, wild mushroom and tar dominate the complex medley of earthy flavors on the palate, with a persistent undertone of juniper berry. Very dense and plush, but also vibrant and focused. The long, spicy finish features firm but ripe tannins. A serious, deep and very satisfying Brunello.
