Sesta di Sopra delivers a superb and beautiful Brunello with impossible richness and gorgeous intensity. Aromas include black cherry, vanilla, dark mocha, freshly ground espresso and a subtle touch of mineral dryness at the end. It’s equally impressive on the palate with smooth, thick intensity.
Available in very small production numbers, this riserva Brunello presents aromas of ripe fruit and cherry with background tones of leather, tobacco and cured meat. The wine shows a bold, chewy mouthfeel with velvety soft tannins and sassy endnotes of toasted spice.
This is a beautiful and bold wine with luscious aromas of sweet spice and vanilla bean backed by blackberries and pretty mineral shadings. In the mouth, the wine is thick and creamy with a velvety texture. It closes with a drying hint of smoke or ash.
Applause to Brunello tipicity in the form of balsam notes (menthol cough drop), forest berry, black licorice, tar and background vanilla to smooth over the sharp points. The tannins are still thorny but the finish is long and limber. Imported by Premier Wine Co.
Here’s a dense, dark Brunello with aromas of moist soil, forest floor, exotic spice and tones of black fruit, prune, plum and currant. These notes are well integrated and the mouthfeel is austere, solid and dense. Pair this wine with grilled red meat or pasta with meat sauce.
Dark cherry, leather, tobacco and spicy aromas of cured meat open the bouquet of this deeply layered Brunello. There’s fruit intensity as well in the form of cassis, dried raspberry or cranberry. The natural freshness and structure here would pair well with thick home-made pasta and sauce.
This modern Brunello is intensely redolent of roasted nuts, vanilla and espresso bean and although these oak-driven notes are very pretty, there’s not much fresh fruit in the background. The wine boasts thick extraction and density but probably won’t age more than three or four more years.
