More About This Wine
Founded in the early 1700s, Lisini's sprawling estate is ringed by some of the most rustic terrain in Tuscany. Filippo Paoletti handles the everyday winemaking activities here, helping the estate produce a consistently solid, traditional Brunello, made from the estate's oldest vines, some of which have reached 70.

Good full red. Extremely backward but vibrant nose hints at raspberry, bitter cherry, mace and dried flowers. Gripping, sharply delineated and wonderfully light on its feet, with bitter cherry, dried flowers and spices dominating the palate. Offers outstanding focus through the very long, rising, classy finish, which stimulates the palate with a note of blood orange. A beauty, and a great expression of sangiovese from a top site, but not for drinking anytime soon.
