Wow. One look at this reminds me of why Brunello is arguably the king of Italian wines. There is so much going on here that immediately intrigues. High tone red fruits – cranberry, cherry and strawberry sits alongside potpourri and freshly turned soil. The vibrancy and detailed energy of this wine is just brilliant and this wine has the potential for a very long life (if you can hold it for long enough). There is a wonderful interplay of attractive perfumed fruit and savoury complexity that just draws you back for more. An inspiring wine that has modern appeal and the touch of a very skilled winemaker. This wine really blossomed on day 2.
Deeply aromatic and opulent at first look. Dark plummy fruits, wild strawberry, coffee, bouquet garni and a very gentle influence of graceful oak. Densely concentrated and powerful with drive that builds across the palate and speaks of the slightly warmer vintage. Classic Brunello acidity offers a wave of freshness and keeps the structure taut and grippy. The generosity of this wine means a vast range of budding matches – classic Pici with meat ragu would be very comfortable alongside this exceptionally accomplished wine.
