Translucent red. Upon opening there is some funk and i initially think it is a tad off, but with 20 minutes of air in a decanter it is gone. Nose develops and builds over a couple of hours. As always with Palmucci, this is classic brunello character, red fruited, elegant, pure nose of red cherry, raspberry, mint, balsamic, leafs. Palate is rich and succulent, a trademark of the vintage with cherry, plums, and suis bois, but it is never heavy and masterly held in check by the acidity and radiancy of the fruit so this is a wine in total balance and with harmony on the palate. Tannins are soft and aproachable, this wine is in a great spot right now but there is no hurry. 1/3 was left for day two in the fridge and it held nicely together on the 2nd night as well. it will keep for another 5 years i think easily
