Degustation notes

Garnet colour, a spicy cedarwood bouquet that evolves into cardamom and black cherry, classic mature aromas of stewed fruit, a noble and complex palate, ample with superbly soft tannins. A modern Brunello, with good concentration and style; a great vintage.

    Nicht ganz so schlecht wie "Weinkenner" schreibt, aber es gibt bessere (welche aber auch markant teurer sind). Einfach etwas atmen lassen, am besten dekantieren. :-)
