94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

(14% alcohol):  Bright red with an amber rim.  Initially reduced nose clears with aeration to reveal knockout aromas of candied redcurrant, red cherry syrup, red plum and flint.  Shows laser-like precision on the palate, with high but harmonious acidity lifting and extending the ripe red fruit, tobacco and sweet spice flavors.  Silky tannins and beautiful balance make this a memorable 2008 Brunello.  Finishes very long and pure.  The superripe, almost decadent red fruit flavors speak of the hot Castelnuovo dell' Abate zone but this wine remains remarkably focused thanks to its excellent acidity.  Always decant this wine an hour ahead.
