Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($90) Intense garnet with ruby reflections. Opens with wonderfully sweet tobacco scents and spicy cedar. In the mouth there are nicely delineated, fresh flavors of anise, mocha and roasted coffee, the whole supported by very soft tannins, and the rather smoky close conveying an essence of raspberry. Although there are no hard edges in this sleek and mellifluous medium-bodied wine, it does not possess quite the depth and concentration of the best Brunellos of this vintage. (Winebow, Hokokus, NJ)

Good, but seems to be on its way down. Brick color at edges. Still some nice Sangiovese fruit on the nose, but mostly gone on the palate. Crisp acidity and fairly tannic.

Brooding dark fruit on the nose and palate. Nice finish. This is a very backward Brunello that still needs time to develop. Good balance at this point and will get better.
