Produced only in the best years with very selected grapes and with 12 months of additional ageing in French oak tonneaux (500 litres). It has a vivid ruby red colour, an ample and complex nose, revealing important balsamic and undergrowth notes, sage, rosemary, hints of small red fruits and subtle toasted notes. Full-bodied and well-structured, with an intense and persistent flavour, it has a fine balance between acidity and minerality and a very seductive tannic finish. This is the Brunello for special occasions. It is the perfect accompaniment to roast Chianina beef, Florentine T-bone steak, game stews, but also first courses with game ragout are a natural accompaniment to this wine, which requires equally noble flavours. A wine for meditation.

Il 2015 per James Suckling rappresenta un’annata storica ed imperdibile. “I vini- afferma Suckling- mostrano un’impressionante precisione, nei frutti vividi, nei tannini eleganti, nella freschezza,nell’acidità, nonostante una grande maturità e ricchezza, caratteristiche che ne fanno una delle annate più interessanti”.
