Clear, medium brick red, wide light brick rim. Clean nose, medium intensity, cherries, liquorice, hints of cinnamon and clove. Medium palate, tannins and acidity still evident, but well integrated. Medium+ finish. Interestingly, this had benefited hugely from having been opened 24 hours previously (compared to the yesterday's bottle). Merits a couple of points extra. An excellent Brunello.
Slight cloudy, dark brick red, narrow light brick rim. Notable sediment. Clean nose, medium intensity, cherries, liquorice, hints of cinnamon and clove. Medium palate, tannins and acidity still evident, quite chewy. Medium finish. A nice Brunello but perhaps not as well integrated as I would have liked.
Opening this bottle in September 2013, it has lost a bit on the nose. Still a very nice wine, light to medium bodied, with well-structured tannins and tart flavors of cherries, cranberries, and raspberries. It is accented with hints of evergreen trees like those that surround the vineyards. Good on its own or with red meats, pastas, and cheeses.
