The most prestigious of Tuscany's noble wines, a true prince among royalty: lean and finely structured, assertive and expansive--a wine whose authority, needless to say, is recognised by most other well-known reds. This is perhaps our most celebrated wine, for San Felice has shown how to achieve a Brunello that is remarkable for its fine balance, solid structure, and remarkable capacity for lengthy ageing. Anyone who loves fine wine must, at least from time to time, fall under the spell of this wine.

Wine EnthusiastInky dark concentration and bright cherry fruit open the nose of this nicely balanced Brunello. Leather, tobacco and cola notes give it aromatic momentum, and the wine shows bright acidity capped by firm tannins. Pair it with lamb or pork.

Wine SpectatorKirsch and wild herb aromas presage cherry and berry flavors in this firm, linear style. The tannins are assertive and slightly dry, with the sweet fruit returning in the end. Best from 2016 through 2028. 8,000 cases made.
