TASTING NOTES
Intense ruby red color. On the nose it shows alluring aromas of ripe red berries and delicate spices. On the palate the full body is gratifying and persistent, with outstanding minerality. Remarkable tannins, soft and creamy in texture, confer concentration and aging potential to this wine.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect with red meat including game, and savory or aged cheese.

"Bursting with dark cherries from the start, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino shows its youth, but also shows its aging potential. The wine seems excited and anxious to embark on a long evolutionary trajectory. I say that because of the inner vitality and energy that burns within this dark ruby-colored Brunello. The tannins are wound tight, nervous and require more time to soften. The fruit notes are prominent and fresh, but there's enough licorice, herb and blue flower to count on emerging complexity. All these elements should line up smoothly in five years from now."- 93 POINTS, THE WINE ADVOCATE
