Shows fine depth, with cherry, black currant and wild herb flavors, accented by iron, earth, leather and tobacco notes. Muscular, despite a slim frame, with a long, savory aftertaste.
...raspberry, tar, hazelnut, dried fig, asphalt and some crushed chalk. The wine is streamlined and compact in terms of mouthfeel, giving us an accessible Brunello from a benchmark Montalcino estate.
Ripe dark fruits and autumnal spices offset savory herbs and hints of animal musk. It enters the mouth silky, cooling and lifted, with a noticeable inner sweetness to its polished cherry/berry flavors, but it then sways more toward inner earth, minerals and grippy tannins.
Tile and balsamic aromas with red plums and cherries. Full-bodied with a pretty center palate and ripe, rich fruit...violets, bark and black cherries at the finish.
Exotic complex red-fruit nose with Middle Eastern spice hints. Polished sour-cherry fruit with bags of chewy, gripping tannins. Very suave, elegant and confident and almost a little mouth-watering.
