TNR: 1990 Argiano Brunello Riserva

Argiano has been associated with Brunellogate lately, but the 1990 Riserva was repeatedly outstanding in the mid to late 1990s. The last TN on this I could find [from 2007] suggested it might be fading. Just wondered if anyone has opened one of these lately. Also interested in how the 1990 Poggio Al Vento is doing.


I opened a magnum of the 1990 Brunello (Normale) in summer 2009. It was drinking wonderfully: fresh, lively, and young even. Based on that admittedly limited experience, I would not be concerned that the Riserva was fading, but I would certainly open one to check! I suspect it will be excellent.
