This is one ofthe most beautiful Brunellos out there. I loved the 2003 and the 2004 is better. Should improve over the next decade. I plan to open one every 2 years over the next 2 decades.
So, for the price this is OK red wine but for a Salice Salentino it lacks the character of dried fruit I have come to expect from wine bearing this name. This is no baby Amorne as I feel Salice Salentino should be.
On a recent vacation trip in Tuscany where the B&B we were staying in recommended this wine. Big, chewy with elegant tannins and a fine dry finish. Great with braised meat dishes.
