JS 95 / VM 93
JS: Blackberry and cherry aromas with some bark and black tea character. Full body, soild and powerful with a chewy and linear tannin backbone and a fresh finish. Drink in 2022.
VM: Deep ruby-red with a pale rim. Perfumed, refined aromas and flavors of red berries, black cherry and minerals. Long and very clean, displaying repeating mineral elements on the juicy finish. I especially love this focused, smooth wine’s remarkable acid-sugar-tannin balance. No blockbuster or behemoth, but an absolutely delicious, drinkable and enjoyable Brunello. Well done. Drink: 2023-2033.
