La Rasina Il Divasco Brunello 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Double Boom! Il Divasco is a dense, powerful, muscular wine, where its sibling is leaves off the structure in this wine takes over. Loads of sweet, ripe, plumy fruit, packed into a very structured, big shouldered wine. The barrique character is very present but one gets the feeling that it will dissipate over time as the wine ages. No subtlety in this wine it is about straight forward power, it feels more like an outside linebacker circling around the end chasing a quarterback, shirt tucked in neatly, huge biceps (no tattoos), ready to pummel someone.
