1982 Soldera, Case Basse, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy
What a nose and what a start to the tasting. The most delicate berry scents with strawberry and raspberry perfume. With air a touch of liquorice is added, bringing the nose to an even higher level. With high expectations it’s time to taste it – unfortunately the level of the nose is not same of the taste. The wine takes the fast lane in the middle of the wine with too much hollowness. Still a very elegant wine, with a killer nose. (92).
