Dense and reduced, with cola and root beer aromas. This is not the liveliest Brunello going, which is proven by the modest tannins and equally moderate acids. Nonetheless, it's not flabby or disproportionately flat. The flavors are good and the finish is long. But with a touch more zest it could be a high-flyer.
