Bright pale red. Fresh aromas and flavors of red berries, dried herbs, licorice and tea. Clean, juicy and youthfully chewy, offering bright Sangiovese colors, aromas and flavors of tea leaf, licorice, and red berries that linger nicely on the long, violet-accented, savory, slightly peppery finish. One of the more interesting, fresher Brunellos from Agostina Pieri in years. Very well done.See detailed press review

Despite that delicate touch, the wine leaves the palate clean and polished, thanks to the natural acidity and fruity brightness at its core. All it needs is a few more years of time to flesh out further in the bottle.See detailed press review
