This is a wine which is similar in nature and character to its older brother, Brunello di Montalcino. It possesses a deep ruby red color and a softness and richness which are giveaways, but has a youthfulness and an extraordinarily fresh bouquet that the Brunello loses throughout aging. A wine that can be enjoyed right away, or kept refining in the bottle to acquire further elegance.
