1988 Soldera (Case Basse) Brunello di Montalcino (lightly nicked label)

SKU #1469955 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Absolutely stunning, the 1988 Brunello di Montalcino is a wine that demands undivided attention. Huge tannins provide the backdrop as this dark, brooding Brunello struts its stuff. The flavors are dark and intense throughout, with tons of energy that gives the wine its focus and sense of direction. It’s hard to move on after the 1988, a wine that captures the essence of Sangiovese from Montalcino in this great vintage. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This large-scaled, intensely fragrant Brunello offers up a lavishly exotic and decadent bouquet of grilled meats, hickory smoke, jammy peaches as well as red and black fruits, coffee, and spices. Full-bodied, with authoritatively rich, supple flavors oozing with glycerin and extract, this meaty, multidimensional, velvety-textured wine can be drunk now and over the next 12-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/1994)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark One of the hot wines of the region. Intensely fruity with loads of character. A delicious gamy, meaty, fruity character. Medium-bodied with velvety tannins. Inner quote mark (4/1994)
