Yet another fine 1993. I don´t know why I´m doing this, it would be better for me to keep quiet and keep on snapping up this bottles for virtually nothing. This one cost me a whopping 20 Euro...
1993 Brunello di Montalcino, Villa Poggio Salvi
Opens a bit funky but with air it displays fine, old school aromas of ripe, drying black cherries, rosemary bushes in a distance, spices, dry liquorice and a ever so slight moist wall-to-wall carpet. A fine depth with a soft, round maturity. A fine dried up sweetness. Very fine.
The taste is firm and dry but yet with a hearthy, warm, rich fruit, with notes of dried cherries, violets, dried rosemary, undergrowth and a hint of bonfire. Long, dry and rewarding. Lovely caressing tannins. Fully mature and drinking great. Very, very good.
