    97 Tight as nails on the nose before it explodes on the palate in a cacophony of cherry, cassis, black plum, tobacco and chocolate. It’s like the best cigar and a great red wine rolled into one. Yes, the tannins are hammering and yes, the acidity is forward. But that only means this brilliant Brunello should age for 15 years without batting an eyelash.

    97 Fantastic aromas of crushed blackberry, blueberry, orange peel and flowers. Full-bodied, with big, chewy tannins and massive fruit. This has amazing concentration. Really superb.—'99 Brunello blind retrospective (2009). Drink now through 2017. 2,200 cases made.
