Rossi Mastrojanni Brunello Schiena Dasino Sangiovese Grosso 1999

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This opens with a big, wiry nose with subtle spice tones setting off the wild berry fruit. There are nice complicating notes of graham cracker, hot iron, smoke, shoe polish and a touch of milkiness in the background. Rich yet very vervy in the mouth. This is packed with fruit and structure but is a bit tight right now though the finish reveals succulent red fruits/ frutti di bosco notes. Real vibrancy on the long finish. Texturally this is great even now, balanced and almost plush yet with superb structure lurking. Give it 3-4 years then drink it over the following dozen. 92pts
