Wine with Friends (Our house, Kennett square, PA): A modern, fruity brunello showing black cherry, a little licorice, and old world acidity. A little simple and boring compared to the 2003 Fornacina BdM that followed. This wasn't recognizable as a Brunello and showed no sense of place. Modern producer and the warm vintage shows.
Beautiful bouquet with red fruits, licorice, leather, chocolate, minerals and luxurious oak. On the palate a firm amount of acidity and some lactic impressions. Cassis. Soft and lush. Ok acidity and tannin. A bit drying in the finish. Overall; the bouquet is great, but on the palate it delivers less. Nevertheless an excellent wine. Maybe a few more years of ageing will help? 2016?
