Cordella Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

Tuscany, Italy

95 pts. James Suckling:

"Gently perfumed with lavender, cedar and ripe blackberries. It's fullbodied and smooth with ripe tannins. Just the right amount of chewiness. Lovely chocolate and hazelnut notes on the finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink after 2024."
