La Velona Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004 Wine Review (NW)
Beautiful cherry liquor and woody notes on the nose
Full bodied and dense on the palate
Long, layered finish of cherry, spice, and coffee
This Brunello riserva has all the right stuff. It's densely packed with a lot of layers and should have many good years to come. If you drink it now, decant it and give it as much air as possible. For $50, this is a treat to be savored with good food and great people. Thanks to PB for a special bottle. Raise a glass!
