Intense and bright ruby red with garnet highlights, it expresses the typical aromas of violets and small red berries, followed by spicy nuances of walnut
husk. The wine has a deeply-woven, robust texture with a persistent finish and well-rounded tannins.
The food pairings for Brunello Riserva must be in line with its elevated stature, such as the traditional 'Fiorentina' Tbone steak, dishes prepared with wild boar, suckling pig and game. It also pairs well with very mature cheeses, such as
Parmigiano Reggiano, Tuscan pecorino, provolone and Castelmagno.
"A wine with dark fruit, such as ripe strawberries and raspberries on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins. Layered and beautiful. Better in 2014."
"Lush aromas of sweet cherry and plum, oak spice and chocolate permeate this modern-style red. Its tannins are very aggressive, coming as much from the oak as the grape, as a vivid acidity keeps it focused and long. Best from 2016 through 2032. "
