Community Tasting Notes 5

    November 18, 2020 - I actually thought the wine might be off a bit with my first sip, but then after a few minutes the funk blew off and what was left was quite tasty. Mature, but the structure is all still there, going strong, with plenty of ripe fruit left. Very good.

    April 29, 2015 - HK Wine Society Tasting & Dinner: Mature Brunello, 1975-1998 (Langham Palace Hotel, Mongkok, Hong Kong): Tasted blind in a line-up of 12. Semi-transparent and the colour of heavy old velvet curtains. One of the older wines? Nose is heavy and bulky...lots of oak but well integrated...muscular and powerful. Palate is immediately...GREAT! Open, fruity, poweful, integrated, good resonance and a forever reverberance on the finish. Simply superb. My#1, Group's #3. I wrote "BUY!" beside my tasting notes.

    March 15, 2013 - Tuscany Tasting: Deep and intriguing fruit, some mint; long, very good grip and fine tannins. A wine with some personality.

    September 7, 2009 - The bottle age has given this a very silken texture, really fine stuff. I was left wanting some more flavor distinction, though.

    August 8, 2009 - Part in a triple tasting including Gianfranco Soldera Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 1988 and Montevertine Le Pergole Torte IGT 1988
    Opened 8 hours before able to breathe slowly. A fantastic, stunning wine. The colour still very red, crystal clar, and in the nose very very young. In the mouth a lot of fresh fruit. The wine very young in the beginning and constantly developing the next 4 hours. Changing all the time. A wine with an incredible freshness, and the wine will improve for the next 5 years and be on top for another 5, I believe. The best wine from Salvioni ever for me. When Le Pergole Torte after 1½ hour felt completely appart, Salvioni was still developing, and after 4 hours in the class it was still incredible. A wine in perfect harmony. You can only imagine, how long time we had to wait for the wine to die:-). Incredible wine. A masterpiece. I wait for another 3-5 years with the next bottle.
