Podere Le Ripi Brunello Riserva “Lupi e Sirene” 2016

$179.99

A bright delicate ruby red, that offers the typical transparency of Brunello. At the nose, it expresses a fine bouquet, where small red fruits are surrounded by earthy and irony notes. In the mouth, it offers purity and energy without it being excessive. A rich and linear body, so fluent and polished that will capture the total attention of all of your senses for a very long time. All of the above characteristics are typical of this balanced 2016 vintage, the climate favoured a slower and balanced ripening of the grapes.
