Il Greppone Mazzi (Ruffino)

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 1999

Young and fresh from the glass with black cherry, cranberry, roses and poppy. Great vintage holding up phenomenally! Black and bing cherry palate with soft,textural black olive, bright raspberry, lingonberry and catalyst salinity. Juicy! Great acidity makes this seem so young in every way, the only hint is a slight fade to brick, but mostly unvarying rim to rim.

I liked it because if it’s #typicity. On the nose it totally reminded me of #cabfranc then on the palate, clear and precise red fruits, a conundrum really, tasting blind high acidity high tannin and high alcohol. But medium depth of color, red fruit not black. I thought #italianwines but not totally and at that onto a spicy cinnamon and clove oak sensation. #toscanorosso — 5 years ago
