Tasting Note:

Bright, clear and red-fruited, very much in the style of this beautifully balanced and lively Brunello vintage, restrained at first but expanding gradually the longer its opened into notes of red cherry, kirsch and griotte, cocoa bean, undergrowth, herbs, stones and spices supported by velvet tannins, pure and really quite measured for a Brunello, with a long, powerful crescendoing finish. 13 months after ageing, rigorous cellar tastings take place and the decision for what will be the final Brunello blend is made. The Brunello then complete a further 24 months of barriques ageing followed by 18 months in bottle.
