Produced exclusively from 100% Sangiovese grapes picked by hand from 20-year-old vines, this wine is matured for three years in French oak barrels and bottle-aged. It is ruby red with garnet undertones, and an intense, persistent aroma of red fruits, marasca cherries, leather, spices and vanilla. The texture is structured and full-bodied, with an excellent freshness and balance.

This Brunello leads with black cherry, black currant and violet aromas, augmented by flavors of iron, tobacco and spice. Dusty tannins emerge on the lingering finish, while the sweet fruit persists. Should be compelling in a decade. Best from 2025 through 2047. 16,700 cases made, 3,000 cases imported. — BS
