Biondi Santi, Brunello di Montalcino, Riserva 1998

RRP £275

A vintage rather overshadowed by the 1997, but it stands out in this flight as the vintage I would most like to drink. Slim and finely texture, it is perfectly ripe, but not rich, showing rather a delicacy and lightness of touch. Intense earthy, mushroom and leather aromas hover on the palate and the finish is pure and long.
