1997 Tenuta Friggiali Brunello di Montalcino

SKU #999516 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark garnet. Enticing nose of sweet tobacco, anise and freshly poured tar, with an unmistakable hint of glove leather. Mushroom flavors emerge on the palate, mingling with bitter chocolate and a note of spicy cedar. The texture of this slightly rustic but convincing Brunello is dense, almost chewy, with plump tannins that coat the entire mouth. The earthy aromatic impressions are echoed on the sustained finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (7/2002)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A balanced and silky red, with cedar, berry and tobacco character throughout. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a refreshing finish. (JS) Inner quote mark (6/2002)
