Still quite deep ruby just ambering at the rim. Lovely nose of violets, spices and cedar -- almost exotic, maybe due to ripe vintage. True to its roots, however, with great savoury character that you look for in Sangiovese. Ripe and med-full bodied, with fine tannins and lots to chew on. Lingering finish. Enjoyable now but will hold for years. Very fair price for Brunello but can't help feeling that a top shelf Chianti comes close while leaving $10-15 in your pocket.

It's only wine but I like it

Just too much American oak derived coconut flavours for me. If blind tasting, I'd have guessed Rioja. Some good fruit lurking there, but why obliterate it with oak? Geez.....Tasted Oct 2017.
