Served alongside the 90, which as expected was much more enjoyable and ready to drink. This wine is quite structured, and in spite of opening and decanting several hours in advance, it needs much more time. It has the basic qualities to last for another 10-15 years.
Brunello di Montalcino Masterclass Led by Monica Larner (Taberna wine academy): Blind wine 3: Oak dominance nose, some cola, blackberries, vanilla, coffee notes and it opened up slowly to reveal sweet leather. Full on entry, a surprisingly robust wine at 17 years old, meaty, very structured and classic style on palate. Sweet and polished tannins, lengthy finish. Holding very well, at least for another 3-5 years. (92) My wine #5, group's #3.
