Wine Review: This bright red colored Brunello is Excellent. It opens with a pleasant red cherry bouquet with hints of strawberry licorice and a touch of leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, elegant and silky smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious cherry and strawberry blend with hints of cedar. The finish is dry and its refined tannins are dusty and show nice length. This Brunello is very versatile and food friendly. It was a real crowd pleaser and was liked by all. It paired perfectly with my veal marsala at the Palm. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ruby red with garnet nuances. Red berry and cherry, light citrusy tones, candied fruits on the nose. Well balanced and persistent on the palate. Good structure with an aftertaste marked by red berries, plums and cherry. Elegant and savory. Perfect for dishes like grilled red meats, game, or venison.
