Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 

Fine ruby-violet color. Much sweeter cedar and cherry aromas than the above. Medium-full body. Fleshier but firmer, with more classic flavors of cherry, spice and cedar. Finishes with polite, restrained tannins, and excellent acidity. Not a big wine, but wonderfully expressive of its terroir; classy and finely balanced. Will age effortlessly for eight-plus years. ***

Extremely evolved and precocious is the 1995 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli. A dark ruby/plum color is followed by a sweet, complex, jammy nose of spice box, vanilla, cedar, and intensely ripe strawberry and black cherry fruit. As it hits the palate, it reveals superb richness, an easy-going, open-knit texture, reasonable levels of acidity, soft tannin, and a nicely-layered finish. I would consume it over the next decade.

Monster Brunello. Very dark in color, withsuperripe aromas of black licorice, dried plum,mint and meat. Full-bodied, with masses of velvetytannins and a long, long finish. Best version ofthis Tuscan red since the legendary 1990 Montosoli. Give it time. 5,000 cases made.

A dependable Brunello in the classic style, drinking well now; could last a few more years but unlikely to get better
