Absolutely stunning, the 1988 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that demands undivided attention. Huge tannins provide the backdrop as this dark, brooding Brunello struts its stuff. The flavors are dark and intense throughout, with tons of energy that gives the wine its focus and sense of direction. It’s hard to move on after the 1988, a wine that captures the essence of Sangiovese from Montalcino in this great vintage. (AG)
This large-scaled, intensely fragrant Brunello offers up a lavishly exotic and decadent bouquet of grilled meats, hickory smoke, jammy peaches as well as red and black fruits, coffee, and spices. Full-bodied, with authoritatively rich, supple flavors oozing with glycerin and extract, this meaty, multidimensional, velvety-textured wine can be drunk now and over the next 12-15 years. (RP)
One of the hot wines of the region. Intensely fruity with loads of character. A delicious gamy, meaty, fruity character. Medium-bodied with velvety tannins.
