    (Argiano Brunello di Montalcino) #1; COLOR-medium; NOSE-very pretty; loaded with really pretty strawberry jam aromas; a little lilac play as well; also a chalky dust component and a shredded dark mocha chocolate as well; TASTE-good firm tannins on the back-end; this wine is very young; very dry wine on the back-end; I'm picking up some heat on the back-end which is OK; great rustic and sun-dried tomato on the back-end; very classic tannins; good richness; more body than I expected which is exciting me about this '04 vintage; it's juicy, but not over the top which I like a lot; this wine is legit; really flavorful; packs a big punch, but extremely smooth considering the back-end tannins; this will last 12-15 years; if drinking now, you should decant for 2-3 hours; would go extremely well w/ meat dishes; maybe a little too big for pasta and fish; classic style; I like this wine; the strawberry in undeniable; I get a little tobacco on the back-end; this brings some serious thunder; WS-94; GV-92+
