Elegant ruby red with oranging rim. Subtle nose of cherry, strawberry, meringue, spice, and crushed flowers. Restrained red fruit on the palate with a faint hazelnut background. Quite round. Medium plus alcohol. Nice soft yet grippy tannins. Dry. Full bodied. Super long delicious finish almost of porto. Lots of years to go. But excellent now.

After more time, some chocolate enters the scene. But the finish is a bit more blunted. I have more of this and will provide an update later.

96 points Luca Gardini in Gardininotes.com: "The great passion of the Cencioni family results in this clear and decisive Brunello. Round and spicy on the nose: blackberry, thyme and pepper leaf dominating. The mouthfeel offers an extraordinary saltiness with hints of Taggiasca olives. Marvellous persistence and excellent salinity." (03/2020)

Deep, dark and structured Brunello. Drinking very well but would be interesting to follow. Some interesting depth but taking second place to the fruit right now.
