1985 Soldera, Case Basse, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

We are back in purity land again after a clumsy 1997 performance. Liquorice, rubber, cherries and a touch of iron, which is nice, but also take a bit away from the refinement. The taste however is right on track and here the iron component transforms to mineral overload and perfect acidity. Drinking pleasure is superb. (94)
