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 characterized by sweet tannins.
"l Palazzone's 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is an excellent choice for near-term consumption as the wine shows very pretty early tertiary notes. Made in a sweet, open style, it reveals perfumed dark fruit, spices, tobacco, leather and sweet toasted oak on a medium-bodied frame. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015."
