"There is a certain sweetness that emanates from the nose. It is the ripeness of the grapes, the plumy and chocolate cherry character, unstoppable, flowing powerfully from the glass, layering flavors across the palate like sedimentary deposits. Warmth, dense richness, lush thickness, a powerful pulsing pumps the ripe plumy character across the palate, pleasing, warming, enriching and filling the palate. The finish is sunny, warming, complete, balanced and lingering with more chocolaty intrigue. Drink now with a couple of hours in a decanter or let it continue to evolve for another 4-5 years, and then age gracefully. (Greg St.Clair, K&L Italian buyer) The highest rated Brunello at the 2005 London International Wine Challenge Silver Medal"

4 stars "Deep garnet color and a generous nose of ripe fruits. On the palate, full-bodied and rich with a peppery aftertaste."
