Description and Reviews:
Brunello de Montalcino is one of Italys most famous and most expensive red wines. It is produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino located about 70 miles (110 km) southwest of Florence in the Tuscany wine region. Brunello, roughly translated as "nice dark one" is the unofficial name of the clone of Sangiovese used in production.
From the very good 1981 Italian Vintage. Barbi's Brunello di Montalcino is a blockbuster. Super-rich powerful, tannic, and heady, with a huge spicy bouquet of smokey tobacco meat and dried fruits. This wine is very long-lived and is still drinking well today.
Drink from now until 2016.
