Brunello 1990 Horisontal Tasting (@ Canan): Very intense dark plum nose laced with cabbage, coffee and even a little iron. The crazy intensity follows through on the palate with plenty of dark plum fruit but still retaining the freshness. There are also some nice flavors of dried leaves and wet forest floor. Packed with flavors and complexity and a very long acidic aftertaste but it also keep the very fresh expression that is what really lifts this wine! The fruit is dark but still juicy and pure in its expression. Having tasted this wine more than once has been an extreme pleasure and it has always delivered at a very high level. Just an amazing and inspiring wine!
My bottle had many of the flavor profiles mentioned in the other notes but to be honest seemed muted and austere. Perhaps it was bottle variation, but definitely not in line with the effusive notes below.
