Tasting Notes:

91 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

 Deep ruby with a garnet core. Opens with appealing smells of sottobosco, tobacco, wet soil and spicy cedar. Redolent of overripe fruit, primarily plum jam, and a heady mix of earthy flavors and fresh road tar. In spite of a pronounced acid bite the abundant tannins are suave, and there is an impression of density and weight. The long finish carries an aftertaste of roasted chestnuts. The acids seem slightly intrusive but the wine intensity and zest are nonetheless quite attractive. (EB) (7/2002)

90 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The dark ruby/garnet-colored 1997 Brunello di Montalcino boasts an intoxicating perfume of new saddle leather, cherry jam, dried Provencal herbs, and spice box. (RP) (10/2001)
