From the Ripe al Convento vineyard, at an altitude between 350 and 450 m, comes this wine, the result of a careful selection process that begins in the vineyard and continues in the cellar with the manual sorting of each grape. It is a Brunello Reserve with a strong personality and extraordinary longevity.
It appears a deep ruby red with subtle garnet highlights. The nose boasts an elegant aromatic complex of peppery balsam and wild berryfruit, which gradually evolve into impressions of smooth tobacco leaf, baker’s chocolate, and liquorice root. The palate’s imposing structure is beautifully complemented by supple, well-integrated tannins, a judicious acidity and mineral essences, which drive a full-volumed progression and aromatic finish.

POINTS
This has a regal feel with a wealth of ripe blueberries and a complex array of new leather, warm earth, terracotta and spice. The palate has concentration and depth with assertive, fine and long tannins delivering a long, unwavering impression on the palate, bathed in ripe red and dark-fruit flavors. Drink or hold.
