Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Spectator
94

Features beautiful perfume, evoking rose, cherry, licorice and tobacco. Elegant, delicate even, with fine harmony and refinement. Cherry and raspberry flavors are persistent. Lacks the power of a 2001 or 1997, but shows finesse and filigree. Should come around sooner than the 1997.—Biondi-Santi non-blind retrospective (July 2012). Best from 2018 through 2050. 867 cases made. (BS)

Biondi-Santi's 1998 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, rich and deep in its expression, offers a tight core of dark fruit enshrouded by a wall of tannins in a potent, concentrated style, with notable length although the tannins are quite dry on the end and convey an overall impression of austerity. This wine did not materially change over the several days I left the bottle open.
