Single vineyard, old vine Sangiovese from poor soil makesfor the most concentrated and structured of the Estate¿sBrunellos. Quite austere in its youth, the depth of fruitand intensity is remarkable. This refined, elegant andconcentrated Brunello is just getting into its stride, withhallmark mineral and assam tea notes. Very long and refinedon the finish ¿ a great vintage and should develop furtherover the next 10 years.
Reviews & Scores
Bright dark red. Highly perfumed aromas of red berries, red cherry, flowers, minerals, gunflint, leather, graphite and spices. Suave, deeply spicy and penetrating, with terrific extract and intensity to the juicy, pure red berry flavors. This compelling Brunello offers a silky texture, superb intensity and captivating inner-mouth perfume, finishing with compelling sweetness of tannins and outstanding breadth and length. Suavissimo! (Incidentally, I very much enjoyed the Rennina bottling as well, with its aromas and flavors of raspberry, minerals and spices; ripe, harmonious acidity; and dry, firm-edged finish. After scoring this wine 92 points, I realized that it was the 2000 vintage that had been sent from Italy!) 95(+?) points
