Alcohol/vol 14%
Ruby red closer to pomegranate, after some years acquires a tint of amber. Complex intensive and elegant bouquet with scent of undergrowth and predominance of violet and musk. The taste is strong, hot, dry but not much, pleasantly tanninic, lively, harmonious and lingering. A perfect complement to red game meat, roasted or barbecued, and to the well-seasoned first course in accordance with italian tradition. It's a perfect complement to cheeses with a strong taste (pecorino, parmigiano reggiano, cheeses of alpine meadows etc).

Wild berry, crushed herb, new leather and truffle aromas emerge from the glass. The juicy, savory palate offers red cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and a hint of grilled porcini framed in taut, polished tannins. Tangy acidity keeps it bright. It's already almost accessible but will age well for several years or more. Drink 2023-2028.

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino from Castelli Martinozzi is a spicy and floral effort, yet it comes across as a bit dried out. Macerated black cherry, hints of blackberry, clove, balsamic spice and hints of lavender fill out the bouquet. The textures are silky, cast upon a medium-bodied frame, with nervous acids adding tension. Dried wild berry fruits linger on the youthfully chewy and slightly rustic finish.
