Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Unbelievable Brunello. This is the essence of Sangiovese fruit, with masses of ripe plum and blueberry character--almost jammy. It soon turns to mint and freshly cut fruit and flowers. Full-bodied, with thick and chewy tannins. It is a wine that changes with every taste. Give it time in the glass to show you what it has. This is a sleeping giant. 2,000 cases made.

Now don'tget me wrong, I enjoyed this wine as I found it to be a sound and moderately expressive version of Brunello, but it simply was un-exciting. The scents of tobacco leaf, currant, cherry and peppery fruit were very 'correct,? but also quite dull. The attack was the strongest characteristic of this wine, as the mid-palate was clipped by excessive alcoholic heat and the chalky, splintered tannic finish kept this wine from achieving any form of greatness.
