($60) Saturated, almost inky garnet. Forceful underbrush aromas of mushrooms, damp soil and road tar. Fresh flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and anise are nicely framed by firm, mouthcoating tannins. A full-bodied and plump wine with a wonderful sense of minerality on the sustained finish.

Dark ruby. The super-refined 1997 Brunello offers lovely sweet cherry fruit, earth and smoke notes with outstanding length on the palate and a soft, creamy texture. Immensely appealing today it also appears to have another decade of prime drinking ahead of it.

Balanced and refined. Very floral, with ripe fruit and a fresh undertone. Full-bodied, with well-polished tannins. A beauty. Still needs time. 1,200 cases made.

this was a bad bottle that showed less well than the one I had a few years ago. Nose was nice, but was austere and thin on the palate. Should have been better.

One of the most promising wines of the flight, as this effort appreciably improved with exposure to air. A very floral, attractive nose that cast an array of crushed lilacs, Asian spices, and dark berry fruits upon the taster. The wine built in strength and power in the palate, time allowed the fruit to gain in richness, softening the wines chocolaty tannic structure. I believe this wine has some positive evolution ahead of it.
