Introduction

Just four persons in a very large living room.
We each brought two bottles. The wines were poured blind.

Flight 1 (2 notes)

Red
2001 Agostina Pieri Brunello di Montalcino Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino
91 points
Beautiful bouquet with earth, autumn impressions, still some cherries, oak and graphite. On the palate the same impressions, firm and fresh acidity and slightly sticky tannin. Also some smoke, thyme and licorice. The tannin is still slightly sticky, so there is room for a few more years of ageing.

Beautiful, mature and complex bouquet with earth and forest floor. Same on the palate, chocolate, still some cherries, beautiful acidity, mild tannin and a long finish. Fully mature and beautiful wine. Definitely not too old yet.

2006 Il Poggione (Proprietá Franceschi) Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Vigna Paganelli Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino
93 points
In the complex bouquet rustic impressions, earth, clove and other spices. On the palate a perfumed start followed by mushrooms and forest floor, firm acidity, tannin and bitterness. The wine is in an intermediate state. Showing some development, so not primary and young anymore, but also not showing all it has in store. No hurry at all!
