92 Points James Suckling - A mix of deep-set aromas of dried cherries and fresh plums with hints of earth, dried herbs and a touch of balsamic. Full-to-medium body with fine-grained tannins and a flash of fresh plum in the aftertaste. Yet, the savory impression dominates for now. Vegan-friendly. Try after 2021.

La Palazzetta is an Italian wine producer located in the village of Castelnuovo dell'Abate on the southeastern edge of Montalcino. The estate almost exclusively focuses on Brunello di Montalcino wines produced with Tuscany's most ubiquitous grape variety – Sangiovese. It is managed by Flavio Fanti.

Bottle-aging 6 months

Color: Intense garnet red color

Bouquet Intense and powerful, rich in aromas, with fruity notes, blackberry and blueberry combined with hints of chocolate
