Tenute Silvio Nardi 2010 Brunello Di Montalcino, $45.04-$52.99, 95 points, poured a deep mysterious Burgundy lace color with a broad crystalline wine ring.
Aromatic cedar, oak, roses, black cherry, and truffle were amazing.
Nearly full bodied with excellent acidity and firm, sweet, grainy tannins managed wonderful fruit flavors of black cherry, damson plum, and fig with orange pekoe tea and truffle notes.
Finished smooth and long on the trailing palate with a hint of bourbon, warm spices, and a warm 14.5% alcohol.
This is a special wine, a pure clean wine of some character and excellence; I'm happy I bought more than one bottle.
Paired perfectly with my spiced lamb rib-chops.
