Smooth & Supple
I enjoyed the mellowness of this wine and its medium body. Not as powerful as a Cab but not as light-bodied as a Pinot. Somewhere in the middle and elegant. As what I would expect from a European / Italian wine, the nose has a rich fruity bouquet and the flavors of dark cherries stood out. The mellow tannins were enjoyable for a nice soft grip. I sort of wanted to enjoy some cheese with it, but I declined and enjoyed my ‘special’ glass all by itself.
These are finally starting to come around. Should have waited.

This is one beautiful brunello and hope I can manage to save some in the cellar as this will be one to look forward to down the road!
Wine was excellent but I feel it was misrepresented. Nowhere in the description did it say that they were .375ml bottles versus the normal .75ml bottles
Stay away from half bottles- they age differently and cork quickly
I only gave three stars for the fact that I agree with GMJ. (I have not tasted the wine yet (I was very surprised to see half bottles. I went back to review the order and could see no mention of the smaller bottle size. Not very good at all. I am sure I will enjoy the wine but also feel the enjoyment will be less due to the misleading info.
I was quite suprised to find that these were half bottles. I knew it seem to be too good of a price, however on all of the invoices I have, it says nothing of being a half bottle. I would not have bought it had I known. I enjoyed the wine, but the half bottle/ and price left a bitter taste in my mouth. It should be made blatantly obivious
