The 2008 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva is a gorgeous wine, especially considering the year. In this vintage, the Riserva is a bit lithe and delicate, but all the elements are in the right place. Far from a massive or austere Riserva (by Biondi Santi standards!), I imagine the 2008 will open up earlier than some of the more structured surrounding vintages. Today, it is the wine's balance that stands out. Hints of orange peel, spice, mint and red stone fruits are woven into the lifted finish. Feb 2015,, Drink: 2018-2038
Good bright, deep red: textbook pure sangiovese color. Superb precision to the aromas of sour red cherry, raspberry, violet and minerals. Intensely flavored and bracing, with terrific saline energy to the high-acid flavors of flinty red berries, fresh herbs and blood orange. Showing more acidity and less fleshy fruit today than the 2009 Brunello normale, leaving the palate tingling on the long, vibrant aftertaste. In fact, the fruit is a little dumb today: I'd forget about this in the cellar for at least another ten years before trying a bottle. 92+ Jul 2014,
