Silvio Nardi Sangiovese Brunello di Montalcino Tenute Vigneto Manachiara 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: The wine is typically closed and quite austere when young, often backward and unapproachable. Generally considered to be young at ten years in an average vintage, Brunello di Montalcino’s proponents contend that the best vintages can easily surpass a century and still remain in their prime.Tasting Notes:Deep ruby in color with purple highlights, this wine shows an intense bouquet of red berries offset by notes of leather and incense which are confirmed on the palate, supported by firm, elegant tannins of moderate intensity

Nardiandrsquo;s 2003 Brunello di Montalcino is an elegant, finessed wine with remarkable clarity and precision in its ripe fruit. It offers notable persistence on the palate and a long, lingering finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2018.

Extremely aromatic, with beautiful aromas of cherry, plum and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a silky finish. Needs time to develop style. Nicely structured. I like this as much as the 2001. Best after 2010.

Earthy, wet leather aromas blow off to ripe and decadent fruit. Full-bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a long, luscious aftertaste of ripe fruit and tobacco. I like this very much. Better than the 1997. Drink now.

Emilia Nardi is a substantial vineyard holder and her best block is located between Montalcino and Castelnuovo dell'Abate, an area suited for Sangiovese of both finesse and substance. Vitorio Fiore made some very good wines here in the mid-1980s before drifting off. Recent efforts are once again on the upswing. The 1998 Brunello di Montalcino, the regular bottling, is a dark and fresh ruby/garnet with an elegant nose of plum and currant fruit and smoky tones, and the aromas develop more thrust in the glass. Meaty and of good volume on the palate, its density is accompanied by a slight astringence as well as tar and smoke-infused fruit. Drink: 2005-2009.

Saturated medium ruby. Aromas of plum syrup, smoke and truffle, with a hint of woodsmoke. Plummy in the mouth, with good lift from juicy acidity and a piquant suggestion of pomegranate syrup. Finishes with slightly dry, dusty tannins and notes of tobacco and herbs. Has personality.

Full, classy and exciting from the first sniff to the last essence of the finish. Along the way is a largely flawless wine that bobs and weaves; at one moment it's forward and seemingly modern. Then it'll go all classic on you. Overall it's a beauty with structure and style. The real deal in newer-style Brunello.

Plenty of concentrated plum aromas, with meat and smoke, turning to violets and other flowers. Full-bodied and very silky, with lots of elegant fruit and a caressing finish. Remains very elegant. Drink now through 2008.
