What?  A great vintage, sharp producer, and a price below normal for Brunello?  The drinkability is here with everything you expect and want from this warm climate Sangiovese. The wine opens with aromas of black plum, leather and underbrush herbs  The straightforward palate offers blackberry jam, star anise and a hint of vanilla alongside close-grained tannins.
This wine is perfect for the rapidly changing weather we have this week.
