Brunello is one of the ‘Big Italians’ and a clone of the Sangiovese grape common in Italy’s Chianti region. The main difference is one of climate, for in Montalcino, Brunello achieves a greater degree of ripeness. Expect a big wine with smooth tannins and full of dark cherry, raspberry, and chocolate. You can enjoy this one now by decanting but it will also continue to evolve over the next 5 years in the cellar. (northof9finewine.com, May 2011)

Nice Brunello, aging fast. It's only had 4-5 years bottle age and mine was already showing quite a bit of bricking. It's fast evolution may be due to it's good balance: still plenty of tannin, as expected, also some good concentrated fruit, plenty of wood and some complexity. It didn't knock my socks off but it's good BDM for the price.
