Such pure fruit. Powerful tannins yet polished and elegant. Beautiful length. Give it three to four years of bottle age. This is phenomenal and made from organic grapes.

Here’s an inky black Brunello with dried violet, earth, ripe raspberry, resin, cola and tar aromas that form a tight, balanced bouquet. The firm tannins are followed by zesty crispness and an enduring, fruit-driven finish.

Aged in a combination of French oak barrels and larger barriques.This wine has its feet planted in both styles of Brunello with a mélange of traditional and modern. The aromas are attractive and complex offering a mixture of sour cherry and blackberry. Closed initially the palate opens quickly to reveal coffee grounds and grilled meat combining seamlessly with supple tannins. Its complexity and integrated flavors make this a compelling release. Drink before 2026.
