"Loads of blackberry, currant and toasted oak. Full-bodied, chewy and rich. Long finish. This is big and rich. Best after 2009."
"Deep red-ruby. Plum, cherry, cola, sassafras and menthol on the nose. Supple, spicy, dense and classically dry, with insidious concentration; this is stuffed with material. Very suave Brunello, finishing with fine, sweet tannins and very good length."
