Decanted but less time than the last one 2+ years ago to open up. Beautiful nose of classic Brunello qualities with some slight cooked fruit maturity. Great plum and sour cherry with some cocoa on the palate and a rich lingering finish with some slight acidity which helped this pair nicely with italian salami and cheeses.
Had last night. Popped about 1/2 hour before drinking, but great nose was apparent from the start. Paired wtih braised short ribs and asparagus risotto- nice match. This wine is in a beautiful place right now, both acidic and fruit strong and tannics dry from start to a long finish, and that nose is just wonderful. Remaining half in 375 for tonight. We'll see if it holds together or develops further.
Great Brunello, and drinking really well. Decanted for an hour+ and had with a new year's eve spaghetti dinner. Brick colored, very smooth, and nice balance of slightly earthy foundation with nice fruit and a very full mouthfeel. One of the best Brunello's we've had in a while.
