TN: 1995 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino :

1995 Altesino Brunello di Montalcino:

Opened 4 hrs without a decant. At first not showing much but after sitting in the glass this wine really started to shine.

In a teriific place. Dark cherry fruit leathery tertiary tones, everything well balanced. Not a big wine but just out and out delicicious. Wish I had more

The 95 Brunello’s I have had seem to be drinking well

alan, I had this back in april and loved it too. Just a real elegant brunello, and the best thing, this seemed like it should hold well at its current stage for a while

Thanks for the feedback. I agree has some yrs of life yet. What I liked the most about it was it was what I look for in a Brunello that too may seem not to have. “Classic”. “Traditional” Terms we often throw around. Now of course I could be wrong and find out from others much more “modern” approach but could not tell that by the end product which when all is said and done is what reallly matters [thumbs-up.gif]
