Intense ruby red with garnet hues. Typical aromas of violets and small red berries, followed by subtle nuances of forest undergrowth, aromatic wood, a touch of vanilla and jammy mixed fruit, followed by subtle hints of coffee. Intense, persistent, broad and ethereal. Full-bodied and warm on the palate, with a densely-woven texture and robust body, while the finish is persistent with roundly-defined tannins. The terroir produces a Brunello with a capacity for lengthy ageing.
