The 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is absolutely stellar. Rich, sumptuous and exotic, the 1997 possesses stunning mid-palate sweetness, density and textural richness. A rush of blood orange, red cherry jam, mint, hard candy, cranberry and star anise give the 1997 its heady, intensely aromatic profile. As it has aged, the 1997 has shed some baby fat, yet it remains exceptionally beautiful and sumptuous. It is one of my favorites for current drinking. This bottle in particular is stellar.
Arguably the most celebrated of all Italian regions for its sun, delicious food and rich wines. Chianti lies at the heart of this centrally located, picturesque and expansive area. Tuscany is also home to Chianti's more powerful cousin, Brunello di Montalcino, illustrious Super Tuscanblends and spicy, exuberant whites.
