Brick red in color with aromas of plum and cedar on the nose. The palate is full, with dense tannins and layered flavors of black licorice, fennel, and tobacco.

Underbrush, sun-baked earth, black spice, menthol and mature dark-skinned fruit aromas jump out of the glass. The bold, full-bodied palate doles out raspberry jam, ripe Marasca cherry, ground pepper and licorice alongside firm, fine-grained tannins that provide seamless support. It's brawny and bold but the refined tannins also lend a measure of finesse.

The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Vecchie Vigne shows great balance that is due, in part, to the advanced age of the vines (most of which were planted between 1967 and 1972). The wine delivers a very fine, silky quality of tannin and an elegant approach. The bouquet exhibits elements of forest fruit, crushed mineral, balsam herb and wild mushroom. The effect is graceful and nuanced. The nice thing about this wine is that you don't taste any of the fruit ripeness that characterizes this vintage. Those old vines were able to stand up to the summer heat.

Plum, black cherry, licorice and menthol aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this rich yet dense red. Fresh and balanced, with fruit and spice elements on the long aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2028. 2,000 cases made.
