1997 Casanova di Neri, Brunello di Montalcino, Cerretalto, Tuscany Italy

A bit restrained and shy at first. But underneath there is a great core of cooled toned Tuscan herbs, spices and minerals. It’s very elegant even if there is missing a sweet element. Taste is where it all happens. Incredible nice, with tons of dry extract and mouth snapping. I love such a wine, which for some could be too much dry extract, but it’s perfect for me, but admittedly best suited with food. (95).
