Community Tasting Note

  • br_winelover wrote: 92 points

    July 1, 2021 - 92pts. This is a rare wine which actually closed with air - it was better when I opened the bottle. So be prepared to decant it much more than I did (4 hours), or even better, hold it for 3+ years.

    But this wine doesn't really scream Brunello to me - it seems to lack a bit a sense of place. And its tannins are not fully integrated yet. But it is very nice on the palate in particular, with notes of cherries, brandy, some frutti di bosco, and raspberry. Cheap for a Brunello though - here the old maxim applies, that you get what you are paying for.
