95, James Suckling:
“Assunto” is Bellaria most prized Brunello. Made from 100% Sangiovese grapes hand selected from 80 + year old vines to produc a wine that is full bodied with good tannic structure and a bright acidity providing balance. A delicious Brunello aged longer than recommended, producing one of Italy’s most outstanding Brunello. The wine is big yet very elegant out very long finish on the palate.
Enjoy this wine with friends and family over great food but at same time sit back at home and revel in its complexity and finesse.
