Wanted to drink a Brunello with dinner on the sidewalk at @oliveto_oakland, so snagged the last bottle of this off the list. Took a little while to open up but eventually offered flavors of black cherry and cedar and leather mixed with a touch of dark earth. On the darker side, with tight slightly impenetrable tannins. Decent acidity. If I had bottles of this in my cellar I might wait another 5 years or so.

Earthy, herbaceous, oh so slightly tannic. Nice table wine.

Great find at TJ’s. Was better the second day, oxygen will do this wine well!
