- 2001 Valdicava Brunello di Montalcino - Italy, Tuscany, Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino (10/27/2007)
Deep ruby color. Full aroma's of black fruit with hints of licorice, a bit less pronounced than the previous bottle.Full bodied on the palate, smooth and silky with layers of refined tanines. A long finish.
Must be entering the sleeper zone right now. I'm glad that I tasted it some time ago. Otherwise I would have had some doubts on this wine. Still plenty of attraction, but not the ultra full body and refinement that I tasted on the previous encounter.
I'll let this one sleep until somebody convinces me that it has come back to life again! I expect that I will have to wait at least 5 years. Drink 2012 - 2020. (92 pts.)

I would say, slightly dissapointing this time. In particular compared to the Ilatraia '03 we had later during the dinner.
