($75) Good deep red. Sexy nose offers raspberry, spices, coconut, dried flowers, tobacco and potpourri: almost Lafite-like. Then suave, complex and energetic in the mouth, offering lovely vinosity to the sappy red fruit and floral flavors. Finishes long and vibrant, combining enticing sweetness and firm, saline grip. Really spreads out horizontally on the back. (Terlato Wines International, Lake Bluff, IL)

This winery makes a delicious brunello. Its consistency throughout different vintages is impressive. Perfect ruby color, long legs, complex and balanced aroma of wild berries and beautifully velvety in the mouth. The tannins are now quite low and tell you the wine could still age longer. I opened it at a dinner party and was a crowd pleaser.

Very light and although it has a nice length, the fruit is not that present. Again with this brunello the tannins are masking the flavors and overall finish.

Hoping slightly off bottle. Super tannic, none of the usual brunello indicators
