Another great Brunello from Frescobaldi and will only improve with age. Perfect with well aged parmigiano reggiano or a great cut of red meat.

Dried cherries, new leather, wood spice, green/stalky. Chewy tannins, balanced med. high acidity with earth and spice dominating the palate.

So much black tea. Thought it would be overripe but super well-made wine. Will cellar the next few for several years.

Ripe cherry, black olives, very balanced. Vegetal tones like asparagus, brussel sprouts.

2006 vintage on Dec 30, 2017 from Bob’s cellar. Lovely expression of Sangiovese.

Closed down and never opened even the following day. Metallic on day two... suspect maybe not stored well?

Smoky leather and all dark cherry. Where tart goes to retire. So nicely made, at its peak but feels like it'll hold a while. Love this!
