The 2014 Viticoltori Broccatelli Galli Montefalco Rosso begins with a very pleasant aroma of black cherry, raspberry, licorice, spice, tobacco and more. Open this one early to give it some time to breathe for best results. The wine tastes big, dry and delicious with dark fruit, more licorice and lots of oak influence. Slightly chewy, mouth-drying tannins lead into the dry, long finish that is full of long-lasting spice and tobacco notes. A bit bigger style that I like quite a bit and another fine example of Montefalco Rosso.
