  • PnP. Dark-er ruby, clear and bright; no sign of age. Aromas (and palate) offer great freshness, several layers of red/dark red fruit, notes of soil/place, etc. I really like this interpretation of the vintage - there's warmth in the sun-kissed grapes, but it's all very well balanced. By the half-way point, wee notes of leather, some tobacco. This is in a good place now, and benefits from 1hr of aeration; should drink nicely thru 2033. 14,5% abv. is well integrated. highly recommended

  • 2nd day notes. Translucent black cherry color. Nose and taste of black cherry, charcoal and ash and kalamata olives with a pinch of earthy tobacco. Pretty high acidity and low but well integrated tannins. I struggle with this style of wine. Its very smooth (albeit acidity is noticeably high) but lacks the flavor punch of a cabernet or syrah. Maybe just not my style, but 89-90 from me.

  • Kleur: Medium robijnrood, lage kleurintensiteit. Aroma / bouquet: Direct na openen: opvallend gesloten. Na enige tijd beluchten: een hint van kersenfruit. De volgende dag is het aroma een bouquet geworden met accenten van gedroogde dadels en gedroogde pruimen. Smaak / Afdronk: Direct na openen: Prettige en stoere Brunello, gepronunceerde zuurgraad, stevige tannines met een verfijnd bittertje. Mondvullend. Lange afdronk. De volgende dag toont deze wijn zich complexer, zachter, vriendelijker en interessanter. Algemeen / potentieel: Mooie Brunello. Die op dit moment om geduld vraagt! 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 9 + Smaak / Afdronk: 16 + Algemeen / potentieel: 9 = 89/100

    Color: Medium ruby red, low color intensity. Aroma / bouquet: Immediately after opening: remarkably closed. After some time aeration: a hint of cherry fruit. The following day the aroma became a bouquet with accents of dried dates and prunes. Taste / Aftertaste: Immediately after opening: Pleasant and tough Brunello, pronounced acidity, firm tannins with a refined bitterness. Filling your mouth. Long finish. The next day this wine shows itself to be more complex, softer, friendlier and more interesting. General / potential: Beautiful Brunello, asking for patience! 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 9 + Taste / Finish: 16 + General / potential: 9 = 89/100

  • Ouvert et bu, cette fois-ci.
    Grenat moyen, à besoin de 30 minutes dans le verre pour commencer à se livrer...un peu.
    Boisé, framboises, fraises, épices.
    Alcool, puissant, corpulent, tannique.
    Bonne acidité.
    Mérite un passage en carafe, a besoin de beaucoup d’air.
