Enticing scents of rose, fragrant blue flower, perfumed berry and chopped herb take center stage. Combining structure and finesse, the palate doles out juicy wild cherry, raspberry, cinnamon, mint and star anise while firm, polished tannins provide the framework. Enjoy 2019–2029.

Bright aromas of candied cherry with citrus rind. Full body, firm and silky tannins with plenty of fruit and a clean and bright undertone. So delicious now to drink. Why wait?

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a rich and luscious wine that pulls you in with the first sip. The bouquet is very polished and bright with a wonderful aromatic presentation that spans from red cherry to blackberry and from dark spice to grilled herb. There's an impressive sense of harmony on the bouquet. The mouthfeel is slightly more abrupt and crisp with a clear streak of acidity that is so characteristic of Sangiovese. That zesty crispness makes this an excellent choice to pair with a hearty Tuscan meal.
