    Item no. 26844

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Of a strong orange-tinge, ruby red color, ample perfume and well-pronounced, great structure and body, full-flavored, very pleasing.

    This Riserva Brunello pairs well with grilled meats and mushrooms.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lively bright red. Racy aromas of blueberry, red cherry, minerals and mint on the rich, complex nose. Rich, weighty and chewy in the mouth, showing precise flavors of red and dark berries and minerals complicated by hints of underbrush. Finishes smooth and extremely persistent, with lingering mineral nuances. This is a simply superb sangiovese, and I was surprised by its huge, almost brooding nature, given that the vintage is not known for wines in the same blockbuster mold as 1990 or 2001. This still needs at least another ten years in the cellar to show all it's got. The 1995 vintage was characterized by a warm summer (at times very hot), but rain began falling in August and continued off and on right up to the harvest. The resulting wines do not have any of the superripe warm-weather personality of vintages such as 1990 or 1997.
