What a wine - this was classic Brunello starting to enter its drinking window and come into its own. That classic ripe cherry taste and Italian sunlight aged grapes and dusty terroir - great nose, huge mouth feel and while still a tad tannic was not mouth bruising - it's nearly there. An extremely versatile wine that went well with crispy chicken, as well as my duck breast & confit leg. Very smooth and continued to evolve in the glass - fantastic, lasting finish. Probably has several years to go but also entering that mature stage. Hopefully my other '04 Brunellos will impress.
