    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red. Complex and fresh, with inviting fruit aromas balanced by oak-imparted spices. Well-structured and full-bodied, with fine tannins that promise great aging capacity; long and impressive finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lovely aromas of lilacs and roses, with hints of dark fruits. Truffles too. Full bodied, with velvety tannins and a delicious finish. So much beautiful fruit here. Drink now or hold.

    Tightly knit, exhibiting focused cherry, red currant and tobacco flavors, with hints of leather and licorice. Its structure is steely and meshes with the finely woven texture, leaving a harmonious impression as the spice and tobacco notes extend on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2026.

    Wine Spectator

    This ruby-colored Brunello opens with bright cherry nuances and loads of toasted almond and cinnamon spice. From the lower, southern side of Montalcino, this interpretation focuses on quality fruit aromas, crispness and a sense of clean linearity.

    Wine Enthusiast

    Good deep red. Redcurrant and raspberry fruit aromas complicated by licorice and pungent minerality. Sweet, supple and harmonious; concentrated and fat but a tad reduced today and not yet expressing itself. Finishes with serious, chewy tannins that call for at least several years of aging. Quite promising, but lay it down.
