Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red tending to garnet. Dry, warm, velvety, harmonious, steady body and character. Evolved that crumbles into shades of Parma violet and gladiolus, likens the humble fruits of the forest floor. Superb!

Critical Acclaim

  • JS96
    James Suckling - "Very fresh and aromatic with flowers, blueberries, dried cherries, oyster shell and seaweed. Full-bodied, tight and poised. Compressed palate. Very long and powerful yet very fine and fresh. This is getting better and better in the bottle. Drink or hold."
  • WS95
    Wine Spectator - "Pure cherry, rose and raspberry aromas and flavors are expressive in this complex, ripe Brunello. Hints of leather, tobacco, mineral and spice lay in wait, but this is all about the fresh fruit at this stage. Very harmonious, yet with plenty of structure. Long on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2032. "
