Community Tasting Notes 25

    November 29, 2020 - Decanted for 2 hours. Opaque violet color. Beautiful aromas of dark cherry and earth. The fruit still leads on the palate, where we also got tobacco, mushroom and space. Still with good tannic structure, though gentle, good balance and length. This remains in a very good drinking window without any signs of fading. Side by side with the Sugarille, this was more powerful.

    August 22, 2020 - See our note on the Sugarille. Similarly pleasing, though the aromatics in this bottle were a bit more subdued.

    May 23, 2020 - Very pleasurable. Concentrated fruit layers, notes of blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, with a shorter finish. The short finish is the only flaw in this wine.

    April 28, 2020 - Without any decanting, this was singing from the get-go: Ripe dark berries, amarena cherries, leather, sage. With substantial pressure on the palate, a dense but somewhat developed core of fruits and spices and fine-tuned acidity this was wonderful to drink now. Given the amount of (smooth and silky) tannins this has left, I’m sure the Rennina will easily make it another 5-10 years. Definitely a quite modern approach to Brunello but undeniably well made. I’m just not sure whether the price tag is justified.

    Edit: Just saw that I first gave this 100 points. That would be a bit too much 🙈😄

    March 14, 2020 - Really excellent straight out of the bottle. Poise, length. Colour still quite deep with only a little bricking. Tannins fine. Just enough fruit left in the tank. Wouldnt wait much longer
