Suckling named 2016 among the greatest vintages ever for Brunello, and this 98-point stunner is solid evidence. Slow to unfurl but well worth the wait, a few hours of decanting releases a spectacular show of aromas and flavors with ever increasing intensity. Wild cherry, balsamic, toasted almond and coffee bean push to the front of this tight yet full-bodied beauty.

James Suckling

Attractive aromas of balsamic, tea, dark berry, walnut and coffee bean. Full-bodied, yet tight and very intense with ripe tannins that are fine and reserved. Racy and polished. Beautiful length to this wine.
