Review:
Bright red. Perfumed, penetrating aromas of sour red cherry, coffee, flint and wild herbs. Then at once savory and sweet, with a strong mineral overlay to the red fruit and spicy herb flavors. Finishes saline and vibrant. Another lovely Brunello from Scopetone, one of Montalcino’s most underrated producers.
