It's only wine but I like it

As JS notes, quite mature aromas, with notes of dried fruit, earth and forest. Tasting it reveals a much younger wine, full of red fruits, fine acidity and some still firm tannin. I'll disagree with Mr Szabo and Mr Lawrason, I think this wine will not only will age well, but needs another couple of years to reach its peak. This is a lovely, authetic Brunello, but do decant if drinking now. At $40, this is quite reasonably priced by Brunello standards. Tasted Oct 2012.
