This Brunello starts with subdued aromas of plum, red berries and baking spices. The palate is inexpressive at first but eventually reveals black cherry, white pepper and clove alongside velvety tannins. Reflecting the vintage, this is already rather evolved so best to enjoy it in the next few years.
