Knockout nose combines black- and redcurrant, minerals, licorice, cinnamon and violet; very similar to the 2008 classico but much deeper. Then wonderfully suave and seamless in the mouth, but with great purity and precision to its strawberry and spicy raspberry flavors. Finishes seamless and long, with terrific inner-palate perfume and lift. - Ian D'Agata

Exhibiting a bold and modern style, Brunello Helichrysum shows soft oak tones of chocolate and sweet spice behind blackberry and cassis. The wine offers inky dark concentration with some heat, polished tannins and a plump but determined finish. Ultimately, the thick density balances out the wine’s natural acidity.

More fresh nuts on the nose with hints of ripe fruits. Full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a chewy texture. This is tight and closed and needs a year or two to open. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Best in 2015.

Pale ruby at the core fading to garnet at the rim. Super expressive nose of red cherries dipped in balsamic with a subtle menthol spice note.

Super expressive nose of red cherries dipped in balsamic with a subtle menthol spice note. On the palate, a core of ripe red cherry and that quintessential Tuscan dust terroir. The acidity runs from start to finish, and the fine-grained tannins have softened. In a great drinking window right now with bursting flavors, and will continue evolve gracefully over the next 5-10 years.
