Fragrant and sleek, this opens with scents of blue flower, pressed powder, perfumed berry and chopped herb. The balanced, full-bodied palate delivers licorice, ripe black cherry, clove and tobacco while firm, velvety tannins lend structure and finesse.

Sage, licorice, menthol and sweet tobacco flesh out nicely as the wine shows off its ample, broad personality. The tannins could use another year or two to soften, but all the elements are very nicely balanced throughout. This gracious, silky Brunello will drink well for the next decade-plus.

This is long and delicious with lovely cherry, chocolate and fresh walnut flavors. Linear yet open with persistence and joy. Drink now.

Wine Spectator, June 2016
The sweet cherry core is framed by dense, ripe tannins in this red. Leather, tobacco and iron notes add depth. The finish is fresh and long. Best from 2018 through 2030. 8,300 cases made. –BS

This is a bright and aromatic Brunello filled with aromas of chocolate covered cherries, leather, dried orange peel, mascarpone, and fennel. On the palate it is lithe and bright and surprisingly elegant. The flavors are distinctly sangiovese- dried cranberry, dusty red earth, and rose petal with notes of licorice and charcuterie. This is very pleasant right out of the gate with grippy, tight tannins and lots of surprising citrus notes. Drink now-2023
