A very nice, somewhat glossy example of BdM. Cherries, dried herbs, black tea. Certainly hits the spot and unmistakably Brunello.

One of the NYE bottles, contributed by my good buddy @Cody Cotten , who brought this back after his visit to Italy a month ago.

Dark ruby in color; awesome aromatics of charred rose petal, cherry tobacco, saddle leather and plum. Rich on the palate up front with blackberry, fig and dates but the mid palate and finish turn more underripe black cherry. Slight iron finish too. I’m really selective about the Italian wines I enjoy, and this was very good, and will likely be killer in 3-5yrs. Thanks Cody!

Complex wine with strong smell of cherry, licorice and dark chocolate. A wine with a lot of rich flavour witch makes it a complex and full bodied wine.
Deep red colour.
Medium tanins and nice finish on the palate.
A reake good wine for delicate meet.
