Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Brunello! The king of Tuscan wines. Aromas of black plum, star anise and leather come together in this full-bodied red wine. The firm palate offers black cherry, licorice and white pepper notes alongside tertiary notes of leafy undergrowth, mushrooms and lovely mineral hints. A balanced and structured wine with incredible aging potential.
