Cedar and mint hints complement depths of musky red currant and dried cherries as the darkly alluring 2016 Brunello di Montalcino smolders up from the glass. This is a model of purity, with textures of pure silk. It's vibrant, verging on nervous acidity, mixing ripe strawberry with a tart cranberry crunch as orange traces add further depth toward the close. Still structured yet not aggressively so, the 2016 finishes long and staining. A gentle tug of fine tannins adds youthful poise as the cheeks pucker for another sip. This is already showing beautifully, yet patience is recommended. (Eric Guido, Vinous, December 2023)

Sipping Fine Wine

Ruby with berry fruit, fragrant spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of cherry, raspberry and licorice with notes of smoky pepper spice, tangy mineral feel. Fine tannins, medium+ savory finish ending with a vanilla, tobacco, cacao wrapped in an earthy character. Nice!
