91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - October 2009

Medium-deep ruby. Intense nose offers black cherry, medicinal herbs, quinine and pepper; the aromas are much warmer than those of the '06 but avoid coming off as overripe or cooked.

A Brunello in all but name, this Rosso is made from one specific hectare of the seven-hectare Banditella vineyard, most of which is used for the estate's base Brunello.
