Stella di Campalto Brunello di Montalcino Italy Tuscany Certified Biodynamic Sangiovese Red 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 Brunello San Giuseppe is a prodigious wine, if one still tightly<br/>wrapped up in its swaddling clothes. Sure, it probably won't ever display the<br/>breadth of fruit or density of 2004 but what it might lack in girth it will<br/>surely make up in finesse...remember 1998, that most underrated vintage,<br/>outscored by the easier if ultimately less successful 1997. Like its maker,<br/>these wines are shy, preferring the shadows to the limelight, yet prepared to<br/>yield, to be coaxed out their shells if the company's sympathetic. It may be a<br/>little titillating now but in time...whoosh! Drinking till 2015 and beyond,<br/>with a leg of something tender. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
