"A finely structured and focused Brunello with a complex array of cherries, blackberries, dried roses, bark, licorice and hints of praline. Iodine and oyster shells, too. Medium-to full-bodied with firm, very fine tannins. Beautiful texture and balance. Remains fresh and fine until the end. Try in 2025."

"The 2018 Brunello di Montalcino is generous and open in personality, but like many other wines from this vintage, the alcohol content is just too high at 15.5%. This is a particular problem when it comes to Sangiovese from Montalcino, a denomination that plays its best cards in terms of elegant, age-worthy wines. A vintage like this is better suited to near and medium-term drinking. It shows sweet cherry, dried raspberry, spice and fragrant rose. The wine is presented in a heavy glass bottle that is graphically beautiful despite its less environmentally friendly implications."
