    Winemaker's Notes:

    Ruby red with purple nuances. On the nose, cherries and fruit jam aromas. Thre is just the right amount of tannins, making for a harmonic, balanced wine.

    Blend: 100% Sangiovese

    Critical Acclaim:

    A beautifully composed and well-constructed Brunello, with bright berry tones of cassis and cherry backed by ethereal notes of root beer and eucalyptus. The wine shows a clean, crisp and structured sensation in the mouth—with a touch of bitter almond on the close—that revives and refreshes the palate.

    The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino wafts from the glass with an expressive bouquet redolent of pine, savory herbs, menthol, sweet spices, licorice and tobacco. Silky tannins frame the fruit through to the finish. This is an attractive, subtle 2007 that emphasizes finesse more than size. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    Interesting aromas of ripe fruit and sweet tobacco, with hints of leather. Full body, with velvety tannins and lots of new wood. But the latter does not bother me. All there.

    James Suckling

    Perfumed aromas of raspberry, flowers, mint and licorice are very ripe but attractively high-pitched. Suave and seamless, with lovely energy and lift for the vintage. In fact, this midweight shows distinctly cool spice and menthol notes and noteworthy flavor definition.

    Broad and licorice flavored, this red also shows notes of cherry, tobacco and spice. Displays some heat on the finish, along with dusty tannins, yet has a glycerinelike texture and long finish. Give it a year or so. Better than previously reviewed. Best from 2014 through 2024.
