Tasting Notes

Dark black cherry color indicating the ripeness of the vintage. Nose is expressive and big with cherry and notes of licorice and dates. Mouthcoatingly smooth and with more ripe cherry, toast and mineral on the palate. The finish sticks to the teeth and is long. The balance of the fruit, alcohol, oak and acidity work perfectly together to form a finish that easily lasts 45 seconds. The tannins are ripe, but firm.

Food Pairings

Goes well with food especially bold cheese from Tuscany.

Third Party Reviews

The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a slightly austere personality, even serious I would say. This is one of the character traits I found across the 2016 vintage, along with precision, focus and tightness that give you confidence in the wine’s long cellar-aging ability. Forest fruit, wild berry and plum are followed by spice and some crushed mineral or slate from the soils. Armilla farms a site with layers of calcareous, siliceous and arenaceous elements. That complexity of the terrain is reflected in the depth and complexity of this vintage. This wine will be released at the start of 2021 with 9,500 bottles. Score 94, eRobertParker.com, Nov 2020
