HomeTasting Notes2004 Brunello di Montalcino DOCG Kathleen Rake January 4, 2010 Tasting Notes 2 Comments Clocking in at 14% ABV, this wine is a deep ruby red, with just a hint of purple. Floral notes and red fruit mingle on the nose, while more red fruit—especially juicy cherries—well-integrated tannins and an earthiness find their way onto the palate to work perfectly with rich foods like osso bucco. We had no decanter (this wine should be allowed to aerate) so I used my Centellino Areadivino to help the wine open up. WHO Argiano WHAT Brunello di Montalcino (Sangiovese) WHERE Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino WHEN 2004 HOW MUCH $69.99 http://www.squidoo.com/essentialwineaerator Arlene Chase I had to look up Centellino Areadivino to determine what it was. I use an Vinturi Essential Wine Aerator to aerate my reds. http://www.foodandwinechickie.com Veronique Deblois I agree with the need to decant this wine, but after you do…it’s outstanding. Good post, happy New year!
