We drinked this Brunello on New Year's Eve. We opened a couple of hours before dinner and decanted. Initially it was a little too cold and lacked oxygen. Over night at the right temperature and when it started breathing it became an excellent wine to accompany our meat dishes. Mild tannins, intense aroma and flavour and long finish.

Huge chewy tannins and exceptionally dark crimson in color. Very long finish, would have benefited from a few more years of aging, but this 2001 single vineyard Montosoli was a great comparison to the 1990 Argiano and 1990 Talenti we drank that night also.
