Added Dec 9, 2012 at 11:39amOpened, decanted, and poured. A moderate amount of sediment in the bottle. Dense black cherry aromas (ripe but not sweet) on the nose, with grilled meats, toast (a little butter too?), and charred wood.The grilled meat character really came out with time in the glass. Smooth texture and medium weight on the palate, with black cherry skins, blackberry, violets and shale. Improved steadily over two hours drinkIng, and was going strong on the last sip. Great structure and balance, with the impression of being built for the long haul.

Solid core of big lean fruit with lanolin and a bit of caramel.On the palate, silky texture with blackberry and black cherry skins and a nice bite of acid. Fine tannins.

Added Oct 3, 2012 at 9:23amOpened and poured. Deep, dark cherries, forest floor and a subtle note of mint. Fruit is still powerful, offsetting the solid tannins. Cherry skins and dried blackberry. Good acid support. Fine earthy finish with a bit of brown sugar. Satisfying masculine personality. 24hrs later-Continues to display a wonderful masculinity. Black cherry/cherry skins and leather with brambles and spice. Love the solid finish that grips and holds in a pleasing way. Definitely improved and integrated since last night. Elegant and powerful at the same time.

Added Sep 4, 2010 at 11:33pmGarnet red with a hint of brown. Sour cherries at first, quickly blew off to a nice tartness, which also mellowed after twenty minutes. Incense, warm spices, mushroom, young cherries. Almost fully integrated tannins. This, once again, plays like a middle aged burgundy. Great complexity of nose and palate. Wonderful development in the glass such that the last sip is a regret. Seemed like it was fading, but then came back strong over the course of 2 hours. Opened 1 hour beforehand and sampled. Not decanted.
Added Jun 12, 2012 at 12:14pmDried herbs, aromatic sandalwood, lavender, tea, and grilled meats, all enveloped in a dusty warm cherry aroma. There is a soft texture and richness to the nose. On the palate, roasted black cherry, more sandalwood and tea with Asian spices and a bit of milk chocolate. The palate has a roundness to it. Persistent and seamless with an integrated parade of complexity that doesn't let up. Complete balance of acid, tannin and fruit with a long aromatic finish.Really a stand out Brunello.
