Brunello di Montalcino 2017

Fermented in stainless steel with 3 weeks skin maceration, then aged 18 months in tonneaux, followed by 18 months in 30hl Slavonian oak barrels and a further 12 in bottle. Brilliant ruby in colour, the intense aromas of red cherries, wild herbs, tobacco and flowers prelude a lush, full bodied palate with fine tannins and gorgeous length.

Extremely elegant and focused, this compelling wine defies the heat of the vintage, starting with a heady fragrance of ripe dark-skinned berries, violet, camphor, dark spice and whiffs of crushed herbs. On the linear, elegantly structured palate, tightly woven but extremely polished tannins accompany juicy Marasca cherry, blood orange, licorice and white pepper while fresh acidity keeps it balanced and fresh. 97 points, Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast
