Very ripe fruit with an almost Bordeaux like character, less earthy than other Brunellos but there were spices and secondary flavors. A nice long 30 second finish with a great nose. Only distraction was the color was almost brown like root-beer. A real nice wine experience. A truly exceptional wine reserved for the most special of occasions, celebrations and hearty meals.

Crushed ashen stone gives way to dusty dried flowers, plum sauce and hints of animal musk as the 2016 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva unfolds in the glass. Its textures are silky and polished, communicating elegance, as a more tactile mix of tart wild berries and mineral settles in under an air of violet florals. This tapers off persistent, potent and classically structured, a perfect mix for a long, steady evolution. Let this dark beauty rest in the cellar for a number of years to unlock all of its hidden charms.

Aromas of French oak, underbrush, new leather and coconut come together in the glass. On the robust, concentrated palate, close-grained, enveloping tannins accompany prune soaked in spirits, raisin and licorice.
