Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, Biondi Santi 1998
Features beautiful perfume, evoking rose, cherry, licorice and tobacco. Elegant, delicate even, with fine harmony and refinement. Cherry and raspberry flavors are persistent. Lacks the power of a 2001 or 1997, but shows finesse and filigree. Should come around sooner than the 1997.-Biondi-Santi non-blind retrospective (July 2012). Best from 2018 through 2050. 867 cases made.
