Ruby red with garnet hues. Intense aromas of ripe plums, cassis, and maraschino cherry with notes of incense, cocoa, sweet tobacco, and spicy black pepper. The palate is full-bodied with an elegant and complex structure. The tannins are persistent and pronounced yet rich and smooth. Very well balanced with red fruit, chocolate, and sweet tobacco on the long finish.
Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino is a rich, intensely flavored wine that begs for rich and hearty dishes such as rack of lamb, seared duck breast with grilled portobello mushrooms, or cinghiale (wild boar ragu) over pasta. It's also a perfect complement to cheeses such as pecorino toscano and taleggio.
Aromas of underbrush, tilled soil, iris, new leather and red-skinned berry take shape in the glass. It's full in body yet shows a weightless intensity, offering Marasca cherry, raspberry, star anise and tobacco set against a backbone of firm acidity and taut, polished tannins. Still tightly wound and reserved, it's a classic in the making, destined for a lengthy stay in the cellar. Drink 2028–2043.
