TASTING NOTES

Quite reminiscent of 25-30 y.o. Brunello in its complexity. Doesn’t have the same finesse as Brunello, but Rubesco’s game is somewhat different to start with, so all is in order. Fantastically well kept, loads of strawberry and dark overripe cherry. Touch less fresh than the ’77 though, but only mildly.
