JS 96
jamessuckling.com, April 2018
(JS95-96 points) A dark and brooding Brunello with lots of blackberry and blueberry character. Full body, a wealth of fruit and a flavorful finish. Kir-like. Made from biodynamically-grown grapes.

Raspberry syrup, milk chocolate, violet and mocha on the fresh nose. Silky-smooth, intense and very ripe; lively but harmonious acidity energizes the raspberry, floral and sweet spice flavors. Finishes with mounting but polished tannins and noteworthy length, not to mention intriguing floral perfume. Still very youthful, this needs time to develop fully and show all it can really give. -- Ian D'Agata collapse

Owners Luigi Fabbro & Katia Nussbaum also employ biodynamic farming practices, with minimal use of SO2. It takes some coaxing, but red liquorice, violet and wild forest berries eventually surface. While more approachable than the Helichrysum, this will require some ageing for the compact tannins to unfold. The property totals a mere 4.5ha. collapse
