The wine has a magnificent garnet-red color with intense ruby-red reflections, of correct intensity and tonality. The nose is composite, rich, full and persistent, with hints of vanilla, sweet spices, tobacco, mountain hay and underbrush. Impressive taste sensations reveal the wine's imperious, noble, warm and velvety character, and the flavor is long and intense. To be served in crystal glasses with very large bowls.

Wine EnthusiastThe Brunate "grand cru" (because it really is considered among the top three best vineyards) has fatter soils with a higher clay content that shapes intense, well-structured wines. This expression delivers a beautiful bouquet of spice, berry fruit and vanilla shadings. The wine stands out thanks to its power and dimension. Drink after 2018.

Wine SpectatorShows aromas of plum and meat, with a hint of wet earth. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is subtle and fruity. Best after 2010. 2,000 cases made.
