Average critic rating : 98.0 points



The 1990 Brunello di Montalcino from Case Basse is a modern day classic, as well as one of the greatest Brunellos I have ever tasted. It exhibits a deep ruby color, and a magnificent, rich, complex nose of roasted herbs, sweet, jammy, red and black fruits, cedar, spice, and oak. The wine is extremely powerful and full-bodied, with layers of highly concentrated, ripe fruit. Despite its massive size, it retains a gracefulness and sense of elegance. The velvety texture and layers of fruit conceal the wine's high tannin. It is approachable young, but should age effortlessly for 15-20 years. Kudos to proprietor Gianfranco Soldera.|Importer: Winebow, Hohokus, NJ; tel. (201) 445-0620 Wine Advocate.April, 1996
