Increasing floral personality with aeration. Supple and sweet, but displaying very good lift and noteworthy finesse to the fruit-driven flavors of spicy red currant and raspberry. Offers lovely purity and intense aromatics, not to mention a light touch, on the long, juicy finish. Lovely Brunello

Dense and smooth but tightly wound, with a lightly minty quality to the reticent red currant and savory herb flavors. Nicely delineated, refined Brunello with an austere, elegant mouthfeel that is less fruity but more refined than other 2012 Brunellos. Finished with outstanding length, youthfully dusty tannins and noteworthy deph. I’d cellar this for another three-four years before pulling the cork on it. Drink 2021-2030
Bright ruby-red. Musky aromas of red currant, raspberry and licorice,complicated by hints of smoked meat and mocha. Rich, full and broad, but harmonious acidity nicely frames the concentrated flavors of balckberry, licorice and dark chocolate. Finishes with ripe, mouth-coating tannins and noteworthy persistence. A very good showing for this Brunello Riserva.
