Very rich and plummy, with lots of mineral and floral undertones. Full, fresh and very powerful, with big, yet silky tannins and a long aftertaste of cherry and spices. Very, very long. Still needs time.--1997 Italian blind retrospective. Best after 2009. 12,000 cases made. (Web Only - 2007)
The work of award-winning winemaker Renzo Cotarella shows through in this wine’s modern, bright purple color, its new wood and ripe fruit aromas and in the juicy blackberry and berry fruit flavors. Yet it is certainly not just modern glitz: Lurking behind is the real heart of a tough, ageworthy, tannic Brunello.
Obviously oaky and sweet on the nose. Clay aroma. Full, aromatic and dense on the palate with a long, sensuous finish. 18/20 points.
