It’s ok not to have tried many Brunellos, I tell myself. I don’t really drink them because I haven’t found a place for them in my brain or my wallet.
I’m pretty sure this is a lesser vintage than the producers would boast, but even so, it was the best Brunello yet. Shockingly, some producers seem to be redirecting their production towards more modern methods for this style of wine, which I argue is in dire need of sticking to tradition. The earthy barnyard quality and chalky texture was lost on a few others I tried recently, but not this guy!
