This is a rich, powerful wine loaded with personality and character. structured and elegant with a long finish.

Vinified in 50hl French casks with maceration on the skins for 3 weeks.
Aging in French oak barrels for 20 months after which the wine is aged in bottle for 10 months. Alcohol: 14%
"It’s interesting to think back to a recent pair of great vintages such as 2007 and 2006 in Tuscany and begin to compare them with 2015 and 2016. In general, we think the wines from 2015 and 2016 that we tasted so far seem more precise and better made than those from the last great duo years." James Suckling

5 of 5 My favorite wine is back with a new vintage. June 30, 2021
Reviewer: Jerry Cucolan from San Francisco, CA United States  
Smells of red fruits, vanilla, tobacco. Full body, high acidity, high tannins. Full of dark fruits with hints of leather and vanilla. Tastes like a terrific little Brunello.
