A delicious, traditionally styled Brunello, it leads with aromas of meat juices, black plum, black berries and grilled Mediterranean herbs. The forward palate delivers juicy black cherry accented with cinnamon-spice, plum cake and a hint of vanilla alongside big, round tannins. It has nice depth and, reflecting the vintage, it's already very accessible.
