Podere Le Ripi Lupi Sirene Riserva, Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, Italy, 2011
"This opens with aromas of ripe black plum, underbrush and a whiff of cassis. On the concentrated palate, notes of tobacco, mint and thyme accent a black cherry core while polished tannins provide the framework. Drink 2018–2024."
Montalcino, Siena, Tuscany, centralItaly
A deep ruby red with elegant brick red shadows. It express itself as a symphony of aromas going from the intense smell of cherry and strawberry to a fresh balsamic note of Mediterranean herbs. An impressive, broad structure that reveals a great minerality and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Serve with roast meat, aged cheeses and pasta. Serving temperature from 16 to 18°C.
