You get a higher caliber of black fruit and rich flavors with layers of smoke, tar and sweet tobacco at the back. Most of that extra intensity is played forward to the bouquet, however, as the mouthfeel is relatively lean and snappy. This is one of the leading characteristics of Brunello. You get a medium-weight approach with the firm structure and bright acidity to make the wine feel larger and deeper than it actually is.- ML collapse

92+ Moderately saturated red. Stony aromas and flavors of candied violet, red plum, ripe red cherry jam and herbs on the inviting nose. Youthfully chewy and saline on the ripe but long finish that features good acid lift... expand 92+ Moderately saturated red. Stony aromas and flavors of candied violet, red plum, ripe red cherry jam and herbs on the inviting nose. Youthfully chewy and saline on the ripe but long finish that features good acid lift and polished tannins. This ought to develop very nicely. -- Ian D'Agata collapse
