Localization: Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
Tasting Notes: The Brunello is ripe with black and blue fruits, of plum, blackberry, vanilla, and crushed lavender aromatics. Fruit-forward and opulent in its ripeness, it is fleshy, round, and plush in its texture. These are wines with generosity and are perfect for early drinking and those seeking a polished modern style. Approachable now though, it will be wonderful over the next 8-10 years. 2021-2031
