Superb Brunello. Lots of ripe cherry with a wisp of chocolate. Sipping slowly to have with Gnocchi.

This is a medium ruby wine with developing notes of blackberry compote, blueberry, violet, nutmeg, clove, tobacco, cedar, leather, and wet earth.

On the palate this wine is dry, with medium acidity, a medium(+) body, high alcohol (14%), medium(+) tannins, and medium intensity of flavors consistent with the nose. The finish is medium(+).

Cheers to this delish Brunello!! 🍷🍷

Unfortunately it was a bit corked, easily seen and smelled on the cork. Those comments aside… dark cherry is abundant, with cedar lingering. Peeper characteristics are really faint as you roll the wine, but I chalk this up to the corking. I’ll try again. Hoping the tannin/dryness gets better.

2016: Well-made but drinking very young, with firm tannins only partly giving way to sour cherry fruit and minerals. Suckling gave this a 99 (!); I’m not sure there is the richness or body to warrant that but will be plenty of time to find out. $55+.
