Winemaker's Notes

Color: Deep red.

Aroma: Very clean, opulent aromas, with notes of ripe red fruits evolving into delicate spice and floral perfumes.

Taste: Powerful and velvety in flavor with a fleshy and sustained finish and refined tannins.

"Elegance, finesse and deeply layered nuances are this Brunello's strongest suits. The aromas are tightly etched: The mineral tones are exact and fine, the fruit is fleshy and cushioned by tones of moist tobacco and earth. The menthol notes are divine and penetrating: A beautiful, vineyard-designate wine from Angelo Gaja."
