This classic, fragrant Brunello boasts aromas of new leather, pipe tobacco, fragrant purple flower and balsamic notes of eucalyptus. It's elegant and savory, doling out juicy wild cherry, raspberry preserve, cinnamon and star anise set against firm polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced and ensures good aging potential. A lovely wine. Drink 2020–2032.
