Italy — Tuscany • $61.95 • WD Score 91/100

This is a compelling Brunello. A core of red cherry and blackberry fruit on the nose is edged by notes of dried flowers, savoury black olives, damp earth and resin. Tannins are very fine and ripe, the fruit is centred and still fresh on the palate, driven by the bright acids that push aside the savoury elements just a little, before they gather again on the finish. This is a joy to drink now, but certainly can age for another eight to ten years in the cellar. • Tasted 2018-01-06 • LCBO id#642561 • Find it at your nearest LCBOVIN VINO WINE MERCHANTS INC.
