Winemaker's Notes

Despite the fact that this was one of the most challenging vintages in the history of our estate, careful research, attentive selection, and flexibility driven by passion yielded a Brunello of notable structure and age ability.  This proves the axiom that while anyone can produce great wine in a great year, only the prepared and attentive can make wines of quality in the more challenging vintages.
