    Here is an easy to drink Brunello at a great price and perfect for tonight. This is plush and rounded with gentle depth to the flavors and aromas of ripe cherry fruit, wild flowers, damp soil and tar. The mineral laced finish is long, fruity and flavorful.

    This is a wonderful Brunello that is drinking well now. It has nice bright red fruit flavors that are balanced out with mineral notes. It is dry with a nice balance to it. I tasted it with a number of other wines and the Baccinetti La Saporoia stood out in the crowd. Best with hearty foods.

    If you are looking for a great Brunello to start drinking while you continue to age those ‘10s, the 2012 Saporoia is showing really nicely. Flavors of ripe cola berry and plums, hints of violets, mint and black tea, with delicious savory umami and herbal notes. I love the richness and drinkability afforded by the riper style of Baccinetti and it should age quite nicely over the next few years.

    Since so many of our customers are regularly in search of value-priced Brunellos (and we are as well!) we wanted to make mention of Baccinetti's outstanding 2012. Since tasting it over a year ago, this wine is really showing beautifully. It opens with attractive scents of forest berries, dried florals and spice and offers captivating flavors of black cherries and red fruit with ripe tannins and mild acidity that bring it all together. It's a tremendous value Brunello that we highly recommend.

    This Brunello is coming from the user friendly vintage of 2012 this "puppy" is good to go or I should say drink. This is full-bodied wine with silky and soft caressing tannins and intense fruit (black cherries and plum) with hint of mineral flavors and was very well-crafted. I would give this a couple hours of decanting and serve with a winter’s hearty stew.
