Dried red/black fruit, acid beats out tannin, very savory...quite good..

Mod concentration of color, medium ruby fading to garnet and orange, dried cherry fruit and tomato paste still dominate. Dusty tannins, leather and green tobacco. VA lingers. Won't last the long haul.

PnP’d. Transparent red color with brown edges. Rustic, tannic, fairly light wine. Smoky elements and pretty much zero fruit. Not my style, but wasn’t bad.

2010 was a great year for a Brunello. This one was nice but I’ve had better. Worth the $30

Rustic nose. Leather, tar, espresso, dried cherry, tobacco. Acid dominates the palate, with firm red fruit and cherry. Tobacco notes carry through. Finish is soft and smooth. Well rounded, just a touch of heat.
