($119) Saturated, deep ruby-red. Captivating, somewhat idiosyncratic nose combines redcurrant, burnished smoky oak, Szechuan peppercorn, exotic spices, blood orange and a saline suggestion of sea salt. Silky, tactile and very rich, with enough harmonious acidity to give this very broad, pliant wine terrific inner-mouth energy. Red berry flavors are complicated by gunflint and smoky oak. Juicy, elegant, long Brunello, finishing with very suave tannins. (Empson USA, Alexandria, VA)

Fabulous aromas of exotic fruit, with violets, lavender and roses. Full-bodied, loads of ripe fruit, yet there's a fresh berry, black pepper and vanilla character. Long finish. This is concentrated and needs time. 1,600 cases made.
