The 2017 Brunello Di Montalcino is ripe with the musky cologne of worn leather, red cherry liqueur, macerated strawberry, and damp earth. Up front, it is generous with silky fruit and medium bodied, with ripe red plum, sweet balsamic, sanguine earth, and blood orange. It is open-knit now and will be wonderful drinking over the next 10 or so years.

Round, evoking plum, dried cherry and earth flavors framed by toasty spice accents. This starts out polished before the tightly-wound, refined tannins emerge. Best from 2025 through 2040. 3,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

The 2017 Brunello di Montalcino keeps you coming back to the glass again and again with a bouquet that's like an emulsion of raspberry sauce and violet candies plus black tea, blood orange and clove. This is a soft, round effort that impresses with cool-toned red fruits and salty minerals and acids that tug at the cheeks as they work their way across the palate. Those grippy 2017 tannins are there, but they're nicely offset by cooling herbal tones and pretty inner florals.

Elegantly structured, this offers balsamic aromas of camphor that mingle with new leather, forest floor and blue flower. The taut, polished palate features mature Marasca cherry, blood orange and star anise before closing on a hint of mocha. Fine-grained tannins provide support. Drink 2024-2029.
