Smokey aromas highlight the cherry and dried strawberry character.

Medium body, integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Polished and crafted. Drink now or hold

The raspberry and cherry aromas are very intense and pretty. Full body, silky and fine tannins. Juicy fruit. I love the finish. Delicious now but better in 2019.

Rather brash and spicy oak aromas sit fresh over ripe dark cherries and orange peel. On the palate, there are very fluid, smooth and supple tannins in a velvety style. Has lengh and plushness. A really terrific wine. Try from 2020

I love the balance and fruit to this. The medium to full palate and dried-fruit and honey character follow through to a fine tannin backbone and freshness on the finish. This Brunello producer is on a roll. Drink or hold

A soft and silky red with lots of chocolate, light coffee, dried fruit and plum character. Mushrooms,too. Full-bodied yet linear and racy. Very fine texture. Classy finish giving it drinkability with such fine tannins. Drink now or hold.

Incredible aromatics here with smoked meat, toffee, light prune, dried cherry and dried flower. Full body, soft, velvety tannins and a long, sexy finish. Wonderful depth and intensity. Big wine from a little producer. Try in 2017.

A full, rich Brunello with dried-strawberry, plum and lemon-rind character. Velvety and juicy. Drink now.
