Community Tasting Notes (9) Avg Score: 95.4 points

  • Ridiculously smooth and velvety mouthfeel with tannic structure but only to support the wine and not overpower it. Beautiful cherry and red fruit with just a touch of Italian dirt on the nose. Light maroon-ish brick colored in the glass with a translucent edge. What an amazing wine and totally deserving of very point from Robert Parker. My only complaint is not being able to buy more when this was released. 99 points if you drink it now but you'll be rewarded with a full 100 if you wait a few more years.

  • Beautiful Brunello from a very small producer - Parker gave it 100/100: I had to taste it. Clear, medium garnet. Nose is mellow with a refreshing sharpness - some black cherry, menthol, and violet at first - then leather, tobacco, cocoa, perfume. Palate: vibrant acidity - a blend of lemon zest and forest fruits, perfectly integrated tannins. A beauty!

  • This is a blockbuster waiting to be released. Very concentrated and dark now with clear indication that there is complexity and elegance in the not so soon future. It will develop beautifully over the coming years and can be drunk now although my recommendation is to wait. The normal Brunello gives more right now but will be overtaken by express speed by this exceptional wine.
    The rating will probably be more generous with time.

  • Tasted at Matter of Taste...

    WOW! This is a massive, viscous wine of enourmous concentration. Velvety tannnins which coat you palate in a pleasant way. The finish lingers on and on...for minutes.

    This is truly a one of a kind Brunello. Probably the best young Brunello I have ever tasted. This will have a very long life ahead of it. I preferred this over the Madonna delle Grazie. Most at the tasting agreed that this was clearly the wine of the night.

    This will have a very long life ahead of it, but with some air, I think it will become approachable sooner than later, due to the balance of the fine, elegant tannin structure.

    Drink 2020-2040+++
