Sweden Rock Festival. Yesterday was a superb day, with Cloven Hoof performing the best concert, although Eyes Wide Open, Masterplan and Uriah Heep also performed great.
In between the IPA´s and malt whisky, I have to get me some wine! I opened this at the hotel room before hitting the festival arena.
2008 Brunello di Montalcino, Ciacci Piccolomini d´Aragona
This youngster offers up aromas of red and black cherries, violets, gravel, veal meat and some new leather. A medium intensity and with air a fine scent of dried flowers rises from the glass. Very good.
The taste is young, taut and has more structure and depth than the nose. Fine notes of red cherries, rosehips, warm gravel and rosemary. Finely graded tannins in the long finish. A very fine mouth feel. Give this 5+ years in the cellar. Has a fine potential.
