The Oddbins Take

The label is a 14th Century depiction of Guidoriccio da Fogliano at the siege of Montemassi. It's a print, let's just be clear, a 14th century fresco is not included in the cost of this wine. That's quite a good business idea though, how much more would you pay for a bottle of Brunelo if it had a Sandro Botticelli original scribbled up the side? On second thought, it's probably not financially viable... What this bottle lacks in original artwork it makes up for in wine. The wine appears as a rich ruby red, then releases clean-edged aromas of raspberry and pomegranate, enriched by graceful floral notes. All components are beautifully balanced on the palate, with glossy, elegant tannins and a full-flavoured, long-lingering finish with a delicious minerally tang.
