Tart cherry, plum, strawberry, coffee, leather and resiny-plasticy notes greet the nose. Generous red apple and spice in the mouth but also youthful red berry and lush field flowers. Crisp and structured in the mouth with a softer, rounder endnote. Imported by Wine Growers.
This 2005 Brunello opens with a soft and supple nose that is accented by tones of sweet cherry, blackberry and spice. All these elements integrate well and the acidity versus tannin equation is equally balanced. There’s a slightly sour note on the end that recalls almond skin or cassis.
Tenimenti Ricci offers a dark and luscious wine with deep aromas of blackberry, cherry, exotic spice and old leather. It’s not as thick or extracted as the estate’s Brunelo, but this wine is designed to offer an informal expression that can still stand up to grilled meats. This Rosso does exactly that.
