($139) Bright dark red. Highly perfumed aromas of red berries, red cherry, flowers, minerals, gunflint, leather, graphite and spices. Suave, deeply spicy and penetrating, with terrific extract and intensity to the juicy, pure red berry flavors. This compelling Brunello offers a silky texture, superb intensity and captivating inner-mouth perfume, finishing with compelling sweetness of tannins and outstanding breadth and length. Suavissimo! (Incidentally, I very much enjoyed the Rennina bottling as well, with its aromas and flavors of raspberry, minerals and spices; ripe, harmonious acidity; and dry, firm-edged finish. After scoring this wine 92 points, I realized that it was the 2000 vintage that had been sent from Italy!) (Paterno Wines International, Lake Bluff, IL)Author: Stephen Tanzer
