Brunello Colleoni presents a bright portrait of Sangiovese fruit that is packed tight with layers of forest berry, cherry cola, cassis, raspberry and raw spice. The acidity is present but does not feel as sharp as some of the other wines form this cool vintage.
Young and spunky, and with a lot of good signs on the nose, including bright cassis and raspberry aromas as well as a nice underlay of cedary wood. The palate features an even-flowing blend of cherry, cassis, vanilla and tobacco, while the finish is long and saturated. Not complicated stuff, but just complex enough to elevate it to a serious level.
Torre Pieve is a thick and creamy Chardonnay that is half aged in oak and half in stainless steel. These two methods give the wine structure and softness, but they also allow for the wine’s natural fragrances to stay intact.
Although 2006 has been replaced by 2007, this is a well-oiled wine with nice green-fruit aromas backed by hints of pineapple and lime. The palate shows a wealth of lime, lemon and fresh cucumber, while the mouthfeel is at first electric before running steady until the end.
A tart specimen with a lip-smacking, acidic feel. This has all the hallmarks of cool Casablanca, meaning it’s sharp and choppy as opposed to lush and deep. It hits hard with the zippy red-fruit, and in the end it’s flashy yet very tangy.
