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; silky and elegant, potent yet balanced and characterised by sweet tannins.
"Il Palazzone opens with a lean, compact appearance and a bright ruby color. The bouquet delivers a steady aromatic lineup of cherries, wild berries, blue flowers and light shadings of spice. There’s more power and persistency here than you’d expect and Il Palazzone has succeeded in making a beautiful wine in a difficult vintage."
"Il Palazzone's 2005 Brunello di Montalcino is a fresh, fragrant wine redolent of raspberries, strawberries, flowers and sweet spices. This mid-weight Brunello is notable for its engaging, approachable personality and soft, round finish. Ideally, it is best enjoyed on the young side while the fruit remains fresh."
