1988 Soldera, Case Basse, Brunello di Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy

For some reason I have always liked the 1988 vintage in Italy. From Piemonte to Tuscany – I have so many good memories from this vintage – and now I can add another one. Striking good wine and the only one so far with an animalistic tone of wet fur. There is also; leather, raspberry perfumes and with an almost arrogant mineral and purity pitch – divine. The taste is magnificent with killer perfumes of delicate sweet berries, structural precision. The ’88 is for me not about massive fruit, but purity, elegance and world class structure. (97)
