Quite a diversity of opinion on this one. I'm getting a bit tar that doesn't fit my ideal. S doesn't get that at all; likes it more than me. What I don't get is any lack of concentration (watery? No way!). Definite Sangiovese profile (expect for the tar). Endless finish.
I want to be a Brunello fan, but just haven't found the one that's going to convince me that it they are worth the price. With that said, this may be the least enjoyable Brunello I've had. It wasn't bad, just boring and a big disappointment. Lots of other respectable options at this price, in any varietal, that would offer greater complexity and more intense flavor. It was like my glass was watered down.
