Meeting this wine gives way to a pervasion of fruit and freshness that then make room for a tale of depth, particularly as the wine evolves over time. Aromas change and combine in new phrasings, gradually accompanying us in the discovery of a continuously transforming dialogue recalling one shared amongst members of a close-knit jazz band.

The 2017 Rosso di Montalcino blends the power and richness of the vintage with the fresh and crystallin stylings of Pian dell'Orino. Here I'm finding a spicy and slightly autumnal display of black cherries, cinnamon, clove and hints of sage. The textures are silky, coasting across a medium-bodied frame while ushering in ripe red berries offset by a sweet and sour mix of citrus, with juicy acids and mineral tones which create a crunchy feel toward the close. There's a layer of gentle tannins that linger under an air of red licorice and florals. Wow. While not classic in style, a 2017 Rosso like this really tempts the imagination to see what the vintage Brunellos will bring.
