Winemaker Notes:

Ruby red color, which tends to garnet red with aging. Very complex and intense nose, with fleshy fruit aromas, followed by elegant faded violet and rose notes. The taste is powerful, juicy, with a pleasant vertical freshness and well integrated tannins. Long and fruity finish with lots of berries.

Ideal with dishes rich in flavor with red meats, game, and hard cheeses. Perfect also as a meditation wine.

Fresh and vivid, this red features cherry, raspberry, plum, floral, black tea and mineral aromas and flavors. The well-defined fruit character is nicely balanced by earthy, savory elements, lively acidity and refined tannins. This is complete, with terrific finesse and complexity.

*Cellar Selection* Aromas of underbrush, rose, wild berry and new leather are front and center. Hailing from Montosoli, one of Montalcino's most revered vineyard sites, the full-bodied palate combines power and finesse, delivering ripe cherry, oak-driven spice and coffee bean alongside firm, close-grained tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. Give it time to fully develop.

The 2016 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino is an experience to behold. The bouquet mixes dark earth tones, crushed stone and animal musk with sweet black cherries and balsamic spice. It’s soft and enveloping, seeming to coat all that it touches in ripe primary fruits, just as a mix of brisk acids and salty minerals penetrate deeply, adding traction to this heady experience. Licorice, sweet herbs and a hint of cocoa resonate through the long and structured finale. With perfect symmetry, and so much upfront appeal, it’ll be hard to keep your hands off; but do yourself a favor, and lose these bottles in the cellar for at least the next five years.
