Features a beam of pure cherry, augmented by floral, underbrush, tar and tobacco notes. Elegant, yet dense on the finish, exerting tannic grip for now. Excellent length. Best from 2020 through 2032. 1,400 cases made.

Underbrush, oak, wild berry, herb and balsamic notes lead the nose of this Brunello. Tightly wound, fine-grained tannins frame cranberry, red cherry, orange zest and white pepper flavors on the palate. A hint of star anise signals the close. Drink 2020–2027.
