This approaches the stately character associated with Brunello. It’s a maturing and very smooth with garnet colour....

Clean, open, fragrant, just starting to move into the mature spectrum of flavours, this 04 Brunello from Frescobaldi...

Nose of vanilla, charred cedar, spiced dark cherries, dried sage, mushrooms, Cherry Bols, and a hint of floral (muted after more than a decade, but still there).

Meaty on the palate, with the fruit mingling in a subdued way with herbs. This is a complex old-world wine, with an earthy note that finishes long. Acid is beautifully in check, and tannins, while medium+, hold all together but aren't chewy. While 100% Sangiovese - this is a long way from Chianti.

Begs for braised meats, truffle pasta.

Tasted May 2015.
