Vintage note: 2013 is rated a 4 star vintage by the Consorzio di Brunello - a “Classic” Brunello vintage, with the ability to age.
Our tasting note: Intense deep ruby/red colour, with complex aromas and flavours of wild dark berries, cassis, and blueberry, with spicy, earthy, leathery, floral notes. Richly elegant, this wine is medium to full-bodied, and well-structured on the palate. Rounded and soft on the finish; the fruit, acidity, and fine juicy tannins are all well balanced.
Menu Matches: Pair with braised and grilled meats (beef/lamb) and earthier-style sauces/dishes.
