Issue: Issue 169
(13% alcohol): Good full ruby-red with a garnet rim. Brooding nose opens slowly with aeration to offer delicate hints of lively red cherry, underbrush and flint. Rich, dense and suave, with outstandingly precise red berry and mineral flavors complicated by delicate notes of licorice, chestnut and underbrush. Finishes extremely long and pure, with a seamless quality to the classic sangiovese flavors. A knockout: this is Brunello 101 for anyone wishing to understand--or to make--a great sangiovese wine. Brunello doesn't get much better than this in 2008. Another very fine addition to the legacy of Franco Biondi-Santi, who passed away this year.

A vivid red, courtesy of its high acidity, driving cherry and raspberry
flavors to the long finish. Spice, briar and earth notes are
complementary, and the conclusion mouthwatering.
