Ruffino Tenuta Greppone Mazzi Brunello di Montalcino 2013

Tuscany, ItalyGreppone is like stepping back in time in Brunello offering up a nose of worn leather, tobacco, and tar with classic dried cherries. The attack is fresh and intense, but it carries its weight effortlessly across the palate with red fruits and more tobacco and earthy notes before finishing long with a tug of tannins that suggests it will have more to give down the road. A sleeper you can try now with grilled meats and mushroom dishes, but it would best to wait through 2023 and beyond.
