So in the glass, the wine was a bright ruby color, with a bit of cloudiness. The nose was a nice combination of leather, dry spice and floral notes. The taste was actually somewhat of a surprise, particularly how much fruit was left after a quarter century. Up front the taste was quite peppery, but the spice quickly transitioned int some nice fruit, ripe plum, anise and some berries. The finish was just bone dry, but still very pleasing, and interesting to see how a more mature Brunello presents itself. As an aside, after the first glass, we decanted the bottle, and ironically the air seemed to suppress the pepper and spice, but the fruit was still fairly bright as it opened up.
