Community Tasting Notes 2

    June 13, 2009 - Bricking disc. Earthy nose, appealing though somewhat muted. Again a little bit of fig. Pleasant minerality present. Good, but not great. Well balanced. I like the style, but it's lacking in depth and complexity.

    * * * 1/2

    0 = undrinkable, 1 = poor, 2 = mediocre, 3 = good, 4 = very good, 5 = superb

    April 16, 2005 - With little experience in tasting Brunello, this went very nicely with Penne Norma (egglant/tomato), veal ragu and other italie dishes. I wasn't blow away, and had expected a more oaky, acidic wine (from reading about Brunello). Instead, I got a lightly acidic and very fruity, well balanced wine. Really opened up with about 30 minutes of decanting. I don't get the sense that this one is going to improve much. On balance, a good one, but a bit disappointing given the hype for 97 Brunello.
