2013 Tenuta Greppo (Biondi-Santi) Brunello di Montalcino - Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino (5/21/2019)
-- Coravin pour, but pretty sure I got the first pour out of a bottle that had just been opened; the pour sat in the glass for about 1 hour before initial taste --
-- tasted non-blind over approx. 1 hour --

NOSE: brooding; tar; dark cherries; gentle oak; a touch floral. Overall, young, tight, and apparently complex.

BODY: dark ruby color of medium depth; medium-light bodied.

TASTE: elegant; tar; dark-fruited; young; tight; medium+ to high acidity; time will treat this nicely; seems wasteful to drink this now. I would love to see this 20 years from now.
