This small Brunello estate has a bright future. Their 2009 boasts a pretty floral fragrance with fruity undertones, hints of leather and tilled earth along with a toasted note. The forward palate reflects the hot, dry vintage. It delivers sweet and fleshy black cherry accented with cinnamon-spice supported by soft but persistent tannins and just enough acidity to give energy. Drink now–2019.
