1997 Collosorbo Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #998746 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby with a garnet core. Opens with appealing smells of sottobosco, tobacco, wet soil and spicy cedar. Redolent of overripe fruit, primarily plum jam, and a heady mix of earthy flavors and fresh road tar. In spite of a pronounced acid bite the abundant tannins are suave, and there is an impression of density and weight. The long finish carries an aftertaste of roasted chestnuts. The acids seem slightly intrusive but the wine intensity and zest are nonetheless quite attractive. (EB) Inner quote mark (7/2002)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The dark ruby/garnet-colored 1997 Brunello di Montalcino boasts an intoxicating perfume of new saddle leather, cherry jam, dried Provencal herbs, and spice box. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2001)
