I've been sitting on a couple of these. Think it will develop further, or is it as good as it will get?

I'm picking up some of the 1999 tomorrow. Hope it's as good as your 2001!


Amisfield - I don't think it will improve much, if at all, but the acidity will keep it alive for years.

Castelgiocondo - I bought a case of both the 1999 and 2001, and they have been our go-to Brunello for the last few years, a relative bargain for this quality of wine. You might want to see THIS, or THIS, or THIS. I'm not sure I could pick one vintage over the other. You will not be disappointed with your purchase, assuming good storage.


Thanks, Seaquam!
