Vanilla and toasty oak aromas and flavors are wrapped around a core of cherry, plum and tobacco in this stylish red. With air, the oak recedes and a mineral element emerges. Shows fine balance and a lingering finish.

Truly the loveliest Manachiara I have tried and among my favourite wines of the vintage. Produced since 1995, it is crafted from Nardi’s vineyards near Castelnuovo dell’Abate in a warm yet breezy spot with cool nights and morning sun exposure. The nose is sun-soaked with plum, baked herbs and exotic florals, while the palate brings in flavours of nectarine, leather and a saline edge. Plush, fleshy and full, it is enveloped in a velvety texture that builds artfully to a powdery, tactile grip.

The nose is rather shy but eventually reveals new leather, forest floor, cedar and rose. The concentrated palate is still primary, featuring dried cherry, licorice and coffee bean framed in tightly knit, close-grained tannins. You’ll also detect the heat of evident alcohol on the close.

This wine’s flavors of dried cherry and plum reflect the hot and dry conditions of 2015. Notes of underbrush and toasted nuts lend dimension to the flavors, which are girded by brusque, leathery tannins. It’s a warm and earthy wine, suited to robust wintery fare.

A powerful expression of Brunello in the 2016 vintage. Its firm, ferrous tannins are refined and polished, encasing a core of rich dark-berry and cherry flavors
