Deep red with a grenade nuance. On the nose, the feeling of the complexity of aromas is immediate, with hints of plum jam, tobacco, and a note of licorice. The structure is powerful, softened by delicate but filling tannins. Extraordinary persistence and an important aging potential.

A textbook Brunello, mingling cherry and berry fruit with bitter almond, iron, sanguine and tobacco notes. Well-structured and harmonious, this should rein in the tannins with a few years of aging. Best from 2020 through 2033. 8,000 cases imported.

Shy aromas suggesting ripe black-skinned fruit, espresso and a whiff of dark spice emerge in the glass. The medium-bodied palate offers dried black cherry, mocha and grilled sage alongside fresh acidity and taut tightly knit tannins. Drink after 2019.
