Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino 2004

14.5% Imported by Premier Cru (!!!!)

My first Brunello in over 25 years! This was an excellent bottle of wine. Very rich and concentrated with some sweet oak. A bright and lively wine. An extremely satisfying bottle of wine. It wasn't overly international in flavor and maintained an Italian identity. I don't think it's going to get better but will certainly hold for some time. Went well with the lamb and polenta. Not decanted. This is their base wine. Very tempting to get more of this. So easy to drink.
