TASTING NOTES

"Big and voluptuous Brunello. Aromas of plums, berries and wet earth, following through to a full body with velvety tannins and a sumptuous finish. Soft and cuddly wine. Drink now through 2010." Wine Spectator
(WS, 10/31/2000)

Rating: 96
Drink from: 2000-2010


"This excellent estate has turned out two large-scaled, tannic, backward Brunellos that appear to be among the more concentrated wines of the vintage. The 1990 Brunello di Montalcino La Casa is one of the few opaque, saturated-colored Brunellos of the vintage. The nose offers up intense aromas of ripe berries, tobacco-tinged, leathery, smoky, roasted herbs, and grilled meat. There is huge flavor extraction, massive tannin, extraordinary density and richness, and a monster finish. This wine is considerably thicker and richer than the Brunello di Montalcino (green label) bottling, and in need of 5-7 years of cellaring. This is an outstanding example of this excellent vintage, but do not expect the tannin to completely melt away." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #104
