Full ruby color, a touch of fading at the rim. Stylish, ripe, voluptuous nose: slightly spiced black fruit, panforte, nut oil, barrel tones and Tuscan earth. Concentrated and rich without the fat. A lush, fleshy wine with good definition: blackberry jam, dark skinned plum, Christmas pudding. Fullish body and texture. Kitten teeth acidity. Firm, ripe tannin. A nice length. Definitely new-wave Brunello: oaky and extracted but nothing was overdone. This has aged well. A fine bottle of Brunello. Now – 2017.
