Brunello di Montalcino Gianfranco Soldera 1994

Winemaker's Notes:

As top Brunello shifts from a primary personality to a more developed and<br/>complex secondary, so the flavours migrate from the bright red berried notes to<br/>those of a briary, forest floor nature. So it is with Gianfranco's 1994, that<br/>the overriding aromatics are those of frutta da bosco/forest fruit, wood-smoke,<br/>leaf litter, while the mouthfeel is a largely savory one, crammed with grilled<br/>meat, loganberry, dried herbs;

Garnet red with a hint of brown. Sour cherries at first, quickly blew off to a nice tartness, which also mellowed after twenty minutes. Incense, warm spices, mushroom, young cherries. Almost fully integrated tannins. This, once again, plays like a middle aged burgundy. Great complexity of nose and palate. Wonderful development in the glass such that the last sip is a regret. Seemed like it was fading, but then came back strong over the course of 2 hours. Opened 1 hour beforehand and sampled. Not decanted.
