#2 TOP 100 WINES OF ITALY 2020

The complexity and beauty to this is really something with cherry, walnut, tobacco and cigar-box character. Sweet cherries. It's full-bodied and deep with super intensity and power. Layered and beautiful. Really refined tannins. Some whole-berry fermentation gives this added character. Goes on for minutes. Try after 2025.

Wine Tasting Notes
Brunello is a wine of great finesse and elegance. Complex and rich on the nose, where notes of small red fruit are immediately perceived, with hints of aromatic herbs, including thyme and bay leaf. In the mouth it is fruity, with notes of plum, the finish has an interesting acid note that gives the wine a remarkable balance, elegance and persistence. A wine destined for the cellar.

100% Sangiovese
