Bigger and brawnier than the regular cuvee, with loads of tannin coating my cheeks, still a dusty, traditional style with lots of appeal, but needs to be left longer.

Brunello di Montalcino: Calore garbato, non surmaturo, un campo di fiori al sole, sensazione salmastra, funghi. Caldo ma equilibrato, direi un Pian delle vigne fatto bene. Ottima interpretazione della zona.

Truffle and red fruit. Lovely rustic authentic Brunello with lots of life left. Prefer the 2001 though.

Lovely wine. Somewhere between 91 and 92 points but I've marked it high for its length and depth. Very Tuscan. And quite surprising how much if a punch it packs for such a medium bodied wine. Acidity is in great balance with a strong backbone of rich dark cherries. Needs time to evolve in the decanter.

1979 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Fully resolved, soft tannins, some dark fruit remaining, short/med finish, cork was solid. The wine is on the decline, although still enjoyable. What were you doing in the fall of 1979 when this vintage was harvested?

Cassis, plum, and leather combine on the nose. On the palate tobacco, cedar and mocha notes accompany the deep fruits. Full bodied with ripe round tannins. Everything is integrated in a mature package that, while not overly complex, is very satisfying.

Beautiful colour, almost orange at the rim, great nose, prunes, cherries, herbs, smoke. Smooth palate, round, a bit of fruit (cherries) left, still noticeable tannins and grip. Should still have a couple of years of life left.

a bit firm upon opening.... 5 hours in the decanter, this softened beautifully. Sumptuous, savoury, ripe, and complex - delicious indeed, and assembled party suggested Wine of the night.. of which there were many!

1979 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

Sangiovese more

2/23/2013 - CDH Likes this wine: 93 points

This bottle was in great shape. Cork was extremely tight & no seepage. Color was crimson with a bit of bricking. Upon opening it was tight / tannic. After about 10-15 minutes the tannins moderated and on the palate we got mild red fruit, excellent balance of acid and tannins. Not a big nose. This is as good as I've ever experienced in a late 1970's wine. Well bought at a Zachys auction last year.

This was really excellent. Thought I would have to wait for years for this one, but it was ready. The nose a bit disappointing, but on the palate quite enjoyable with hints of blackberries, plums and that lovely sangiovese touch. Can recommend this enough.

1977 Argiano Brunello di Montalcino Riserva

I think this bottle was on the downward slide, but enjoyable. We talked about where we were & what we were doing in 1977 - really puts the staying power of this wine in perspective! Color was purple with a bit of orange - one of us said it looked like port. Soft but weighty in the mouth - tannins fully resolved, no tannic bite. Little fruit on the palate, maybe a bit raisiny. If you have any, drink up!

Pretty hazy with sediment but none the worse for it.
Still vibrant fruit, savoury, silky smooth - impressive!
This was only their 3rd vintage of Brunello and FIRST ever Riserva... becoming Phenomena from 1999 vintage.

Bottle fill and cork all excellent. This was very popular and went fast as we drank it after dinner with a little cheese and not much decanting time. I think it would be even better with more air time and proper food. Excellent wine and still very young, but approachable now.

Despite beirg vertical for over 24 hours, a superfine sediment still prevailed upon decanting, so alas no translucent purple, but hints of brick orange hint at a decade of cellaring. A splendidly complex bouquet reveals trampled violets , a suggestion of dried spices, (mace, cinnamon). On the palate rich and still impressively lively,with good acidity. Savoury black dried fruits and oak so well integratrated it bearly intrudes . The finish is long and luxurious, quite befitting a wine of this pedigree. Although this is drinking very well now, it will continue to evolve to efficacious effect over the next 8-10 years.

Sesti / Costanti Brunello Vertical (Alex's place): Disappointing. This was objectively a wine with a lot going on, but it was just so overworked at the moment that it was outperform by its non-Riserva brethren by quite a distance. It was certainly a real shift in gear from the two more tradtional BdM riservas on the same flight. This had lots of milk chocolatey oak notes on the nose alongside ripe black fruit and a whiff of violets. The palate was rather too oaky too, coming across with lots of coconut shavings and vanilla flavours. There were plush tannins, juicy acidity and pure, clear, rather sweet fruit in a superbly long finish, but it just came across as a bit too worked at the moment. Solid raw material, but this needs years and years yet. Not that great at the moment. May be better in 10 years.

Xmas lunch - as good a bottle of Brunello as i have had in ages - svelte, sweet, dark and alluring; lovely core of dark rum soaked sweet black cherry fruit, intensity, and savoury. Fab!
