What a triumph of a Brunello. This...THIS is what I was hoping I would taste when I invested in this vintage. Such elegance and power rolled into one. I see why JS gave this 96 points. Opened it early and just placed the cork back in to let some air in progressively over probably 60-90 minutes. Tannins are well integrated, lots of cherry, meat blood, great acid. This is what Brunello is supposed to be! Probably 1 of the top 2 wines of the afternoon.

I agree with WS on the nose, but we part company thereafter. You think it is going to be a very full bodied Brunello, but then you are disappointed by a really really weak mid-palate. James Suckling must have tasted too manny wines the day he rated this.

Really much juicier than I would have expected with far less structure. An acceptable wine but I was looking for a lot more out of this vintage.

8 hours of air and consumed over two nights. Notes of cherry, game, and soy with a bit of spice lurking in the finish. A bit closed now and will benefit with a few years' bottle age.

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.
