Review:
Lively dark red. Expressive aromas of strawberry, iron and loam, lifted by a violet topnote. Juicy and brisk, with ripe harmonious acidity nicely framing the redcurrant, spice and herb flavors. This deep, precise Rosso finishes clean and persistent, with a saline note. A declassified Brunello made from roughly 45 year old vines, this is an excellent Rosso.
