Giuseppe, or “Citrico” (the “citric one” for his rather acerbic personality) shows off what's possible with the Brunate Cru & ultra traditional methods (no French oak here, baby). Cherry, rose & menthol on the nose, and dark cherry fruit with tobacco, cocoa and crushed gravel on the palate make this a sensory delight.

Remarkably, I find Beppe's 2011 Brunate approachable now — most likely due to the warm year. You will likely want to lay this down for a while and check back in 2018.

I'm limiting this lovely to 2 bottles per person. If you'd like more of this vintage, send me a note.

For an amusing view into Giuseppe & his wines, read Jeremy Parzen's article on his visit to Citrico's cantina.
