($53) Good medium ruby color. Superripe aroma of kirsch Sweet, dense and a bit youthfully musclebound, with concentrated flavors of black cherry, blackberry and Valrhona chocolate. Still a bit folded in on itself, but this is solid, young and built to age. May ultimate merit an outstanding rating. (Robert Mondavi Imports, Napa, CA)

The 1999 Brunello di Montalcino is, for me the best produced to date (though there will unquestionably be a Riserva from the vintage next year), a blackish garnet with a sizeable and warm nose of plums, resin, liquorice, and chocolate and a substantial, firm, and intense palate, sustained and lingering on the aftertaste.

A tight and chewy wine, with full body and lots of raisin and spice character. Impressive, ripe tannins. Thick and powerful; needs time in the bottle. From one of the most serious producers in Montalcino now. 21,660 cases made.

Nice color still - earth and fruit. Good balance with tobacco, cherry, vanilla. Still a good amount of tannins. Really good! I would buy more without a doubt...

Drank with Mike & Carol, beautiful deep dark ruby red, soft fragrant nose of wild flowers, and berries, well integrated tannins, and a nice finish of about 45 seconds.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
