Dark, with earthy, funky aromas. Full-bodied, with ripe fruit and a spicy, earthy aftertaste.

The dark ruby/purple-colored, outstanding 1995 Brunello di Montalcino offers a sensational bouquet of dried herbs, incense, licorice, and ripe, jammy strawberry, cherry, and red currant fruit. Opulent on the palate, with sweet, intense, berry fruit, this lush, ripe, evolved Brunello is ideal for drinking over the next 7-8 years.

Very dark ruby with blackish highlights, far from the normal color of a 100% sangiovese. Overripe on the nose and rather tannic on the palate. Rather strange on the whole, and with little in the way of typical Brunello character. (Winebow, Inc., New York, NY)
