Community Tasting Notes 6

    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.

    June 5, 2021 - Medium to full body, bright ruby color. Impressive balsamic aroma of red fruits, flowers, tobacco, and spicy oak. Classical Sangiovese palate of cherry and raspberry following by lingering, rounding finish. Excellent structured, complex and balanced, vital acidity and muscular but already integrated tannins. Great wine. Food friendly, well paring with lamb cutlets. Serve 16ºC - 20ºC. Open half hour ahead. Drink now and next six years.

    February 21, 2020 - At la Luge restaurant, in Valtournenche. Light hue. Forst nose weird and a doudt of cork. Quickly after decantation, super structure with bloody orange underforest, spices dried roses, roots, no oak felling exept underforest. High acidity and good bitterness, ending mineraly. No seduction here but power of sangiovese. At his best for few years more.

    August 20, 2018 - Nice and typical young Brunello with a nice acidity and a fair amount of wood, something to put away in your cellar

    June 2, 2018 - I bit rounder and richer on the nose that their "standard" 2012 Brunello tasted alongside. Very fresh on the palate, pure fruit, spicy with ripe tannins and impressive length. Excellent. 92-93+
