Brimstone notes blow off quickly to reveal smooth vanilla, coffee, chocolate, toast, cherry and eucalyptus. A wine with a long, spicy finish, firmly-built body and drying tannins. Imported by Premier Wine Co.
Not overblown or exaggerated, this tight and carefully balanced Brunello strikes a chord between power and elegance. At its essence are aromas of red fruit, forest berry, cola, mesquite and cedar wood.
Baricci is a small estate that has shown a nice evolution in style and presentation over the past several years. Wines are aged in large oak casks to allow those fruit essences of blackberry and wild cherry to shine through. A distant touch of exotic spice adds an elegant feel to the finish.
The wine is subdued and clean on the nose and it doesn’t exaggerate or mask the quality of fruit. This is executed in a bright, compact and streamlined style that combines freshness and firmness.
You’ll get harmony here and well integrated oak shadings at the back of cherry, vanilla spice and blackberry. This is a genuine and straightforward Brunello that does a good job of representing the territory and the traditions of winemaking in Tuscany.
This wine offers an unusual combination of hot, jammy fruit backed by crisp acidity. Its aromas are big and bulky yet the mouthfeel is surprisingly fresh. Pair this wine with roasted duck or other fatty meats.
