91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014
Deep red-ruby. Aromas of balsamic red cherry, blueberry, licorice, dried flowers and sweet oak. Suave and rather soft on entry, then nicely stuffed with energetic red fruit and sweet spice flavors in the middle. The broad finish features smooth oak tannins and a ripe fleshy mouthfeel. Made from a vineyard at higher altitude than those from which owner Andrea Cortonesi makes his standout Uccelliera Brunellos: in the warmer weather conditions of 2009 it's richer and riper than usual.
