2001 Brunello Vintage (Aug 2006)

Neri’s 1999 Brunello di Montalcino Cerretalto is simply an unforgettable wine. Boasting tremendous concentration and deep, rich color, this potent Brunello exudes vibrant layers of tar, scorched earth, licorice, mineral and dark fruit that captivate the taster in an extraordinary display of power and finesse. Constantly revealing new shades of nuance as it opens in the glass, it is one of the most unique and utterly compelling wines I tasted on my recent trip to Montalcino. I imagine it will still offer great drinking at age twenty. Anticipated maturity
