Slightly dullish deep red. Aromatic nose offers red cherry, tobacco leaf and balsamic herbs lifted by a peppery quality. Dense and chewy on the palate, showing an almost high-toned quality to its dark red fruit, leather, spice and balsamic cocoa flavors. Showed increasing vibrancy with aeration and finishes smooth and long. Made from a very hot vintage, the majority of the 1997 Brunellos were tragically overrated and have aged poorly. By contrast, this wine from Il Marroneto is fresher and livelier than most, a direct consequence of the estate's cooler microclimate. One of the success stories in this troubled Montalcino vintage.
