Winemaker's Notes

A beautiful Brunello with great balance and elegance. A wine with big character without excessive power.

Sweet, dense, juicy nose with slightly spicy notes and creamy fruit, dominated by ripe cherries and plums.

A wine with a big character and excellent balance, endowed with a magnificent pleasantness and the right softness that tempers the solid tannic and earthy structure.
