Meaty aromas of smoked bacon and bresaola appear at first but softer aromas of chocolate, mocha and nutmeg slowly mature as the wine evolves in the glass. There’s a slight touch of cherry sweetness in the mouth and the fade is both juicy and persistent.
Concentrated and dense, with bold red fruit, deep spice notes and overtones of tobacco, bresaola, leather and cigar box. It’s a bold, masculine wine but restrained and elegant at the same time. Despite the bold bouquet, the mouthfeel is rather compact and firm. It leaves the palate refreshed.
What this Brunello has going for it is the softness of its bouquet and immediate aromas of ripe cherry fruit, spice, chocolate and cedar. Careful barrel aging has softened the high acidity and gives the wine a more approachable and pleasurable style.
Maurizio Lambardi presents a rich and enticing Brunello with a pretty aromatic lineup that spans from bright cherry to sophisticated spice notes. The wine is smooth and firm in the mouth and is ready to drink now.
