Wine Advocate | Rating: 91The 1990 Riserva exhibits a broodingly deep garnet/plum color, sweet aromas of tobacco, chocolate, herbs, and dried cherries, full body, outstanding depth, and an impressive, yet tannic finish. Give it 5/6 years of cellaring.Author: Robert Parker
Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Big and alcoholic. A full-bodied wine, with a mouthful of minty, spicy character and a long, fruity finish. Soft tannins. Slightly overdone.
Self | Rating:This wine was completely closed and therefor hard to rate. It was a big disappointment, full of tannens, tastes of green wood and while it softened over time, it never ripened. in a blind tasting, I would never have guessed at 1990 BrunelloDrink Dates: 2012+Author: Ricknat1
