 Tasted by Jay A on 5/8/2013 & rated 93 points: I love this wine! Deep dark cherry fruit with earth, cocoa, leather and dried herbs. It is a pretty dense Brunello, but it still has a nice texture. There is a hint of rusticity. The tannins are dusty and aren't necessarily integrated and refined, but somehow they work with this wine. This is a big and dense Brunello that is still light on its feet. It is drinking nicely now, but I think with some time it can become even more harmonious.

Wonderful with lamb and basil ragu on lumache pasta. (618 views)
 Tasted by jnewman77 on 1/6/2013 & rated 90 points: A nice example of a lighter brunello. Ruby red color with very floral aromas along with some red berry fruits and hints of earthiness. Nicely balanced with bright acidity that makes it a good wine for tomato based italian cuisine. Finish is lacking a bit as the acidity takes over a little too quickly. (666 views)

SANGIOVESE: (Pronounced "sahn-joh-vhe-se").
Sangiovese - Italy's claim to fame, the pride of Tuscany. Traditionally made, the wines are full of cherry fruit, earth, and cedar. It produces Chianti (Classico), Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino, Rosso di Montepulciano, Montefalco Rosso, and many others. Sangiovese is also the backbone in many of the acclaimed, modern-styled "Super-Tuscans", where it is blended with Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc) and typically aged in French oak barrels, resulting a wine primed for the international market in the style of a typical California cabernet: oaky, high-alcohol, and a ripe, jammy, fruit-forward profile.[16]

Semi-classic grape grown in the Tuscany region of Italy. Used to produce the Chianti and other Tuscan red wines. Has many clonal versions, two of which seem to predominate. The Sangiovese Grosso clone Brunello variety is used for the dark red, traditionally powerful and slow-maturing "Brunello di Montalcino" wine. The other is the Sangiovese Piccolo, also known under the historical synonym name Sangioveto, used for standard Chianti Classico DOC wines. Old vine derived wine is often used in the better versions, needing several years ageing to reach peak. A third clone, Morellino, is used in a popular wine blend with the same name found in the southern part of the province. Recent efforts in California with clones of this variety are very promising, producing medium-bodied reds with rich cherry or plumlike flavors and aromas. Among the available clonal versions are R6 and R7, derived from the Montalcino region of Italy, having average productivity/ripening and producing small berries on medium size clusters. R10 and R24 are well-recommended. R23, listed as deriving from the Emilia-Romagna region, has good vigor with medium-small clusters with earlier ripening. R102 derives from the Montepulciano region and reported to have average vigor with moderate productivity that results in higher sugar levels and good acidity from medium-small berries on medium-small clusters. Has synonym name of Nielluccio where grown in Corsica.
