This gem of an estate delivered a smooth and vibrant 2009 Brunello. It boasts aromas of chocolate-covered cherries accented with truffle, leather, mint and balsamic notes that all carry over to the palate alongside mocha on the back. The juicy fruit is supported by just enough fresh acidity and bracing tannins.
