Tasting Notes: Aged at least 5 years, 3 of which in oak casks. Intense ruby red in color. On the nose it is rich and elegant with hints of of mature fruit. On the palate it is elegant, harmonious, and slightly tannic.

Food Pairings: Pair this wine with wild game, steaks, grilled or roasted meats, and aged cheeses.

James Suckling: Full-bodied and full-flavored Brunello with black-plum, black-fruit and some mild fresh-licorice character. Silky palate and a fresh finish. This is well-poised and attractive now, but it give it a little more time. Best from 2022.”

Wine Enthusiast: “Aromas of violet, leather and underbrush lead the way. The savory, medium-bodied palate offers black cherry, tobacco and white pepper alongside fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity.”
