(2021) What a terrific Brunello, from a four hectare vineyard and raised in oak barrels of 500 to 700-litres, for 30 months. There's a little softness around the rim to the solid colour, and such a wonderfully spicy, vanilla-laden nose, with a touch of pencil-shaving finesse to very ripe, generous fruit. In the mouth huge fruit sweetness, but that is tempered by a touch of meaty, clove-like and incense character, the silky tannins and pert cherry skins acidity adding grip without weight, the purity of the fruit and hints of tobacco and more exotic spice running to the finish. £35.99 as part of a mixed six.
