Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) Vasco Sassetti Brunello di Montalcino has a wide, open nose with ripe aromas of black cherry, black pepper, tobacco, raspberry and eucalyptus. The palate is equally complex and interesting, with flavors of ripe raspberry, black cherry, tobacco, tar, earth, and a touch of spice. It has great acidity and dryness that builds to sharp medium tannins.
