Il Palazzone Brunello is intense ruby red with deep garnet hues. The bouquet is intense and ethereal with aromas ranging from dark fruit and berries to chocolate, coffee, leather, liquorice and balsamic notes. The wines are silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins. Il Palazzone Brunellos are beautifully balanced with all the promise of their bouquet fulfilled in the mouth and finish.
"Aromas of roses, blackberries and plums. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a milk chocolate and berry flavors. Long and caressing. Best from 2010 through 2015.
"The 2004 Brunello di Montalcino from Il Palazzone is sweet, open and accessible, with pretty notes of floral red fruits that blossom in a generous, round style. The wine shows lovely balance and persistence as suggestions of herbs, tobacco and spices linger on the finish. This is another of the more forward wines of the vintage and it should drink well pretty much upon release."
