1995 Biondi Santi - Tenuta Il Greppo Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Tuscany, Italy

Not served in a Burgundy glass by the sommelier, so we all went for other guesses, but nobody nailed it to be a BdM. At first I liked it a lot as it came with more fresh fruit than the two previous Burgundy wines. It also had some cherry scents and smoked meats. The taste is at first alright with velvet milk chocolate fruit. However; as I analyzed it a bit further there where simply no complex notes. The wine seems very simple and with very little character and what at first sight look was a nice wine slowly transformed into a simpler and lesser wine. Disappointing. (84)
