Bello Brunello

Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2003

Beautiful Brunello. A welcome reward after hiking the six mile Cinque
Terre coastal hillside.

Sun warmed earth, dried Turkish figs, spice and black berry purée in
the nose. Full on the palate with tannins as smooth as my college
roommate on a Saturday night. Coffee, cedar and dense black plums pop
out in the end.

Excellent Brunello, worth the praise.
