Tasting Notes

At just over a decade old, this wonderful 2006 Palafreno is reaching a fine summit of classical expression. Dense, ripe plum and prune are encased in exotic spiced notes.  The texture is silken and profound with pristine, velveteen tannins and an elegance only found in wines of real pedigree.  Lingering long in the mouth, it displays leather, cigar box, game and dark cherries alongside a distinctive energy and perfume that speaks of its Tuscan heritage.  2006 Palafreno is a classy wine that comes in minute quantities direct from Querciabella’s cellar in Chianti.  Exquisite provenance for a wine of this stature doesn’t come along very often.  You won’t want to miss out.
